Big Doings in Montgomery Tomorrow

We spent last night in Prattville, Alabama, just outside the state's capital, Montgomery. I see in yesterday's USA Today, that the re-enactment of Jefferson Davis' swearing in as president of the Confederacy is going to be held tomorrow.

Too bad, I would have liked to have been at it, but doubt that I will be willing to drive the 150 miles or so back from Panama City Beach to attend it.

Of course, anything Confederate as far as commemorating the 150th annivesary of the war is being massively attacked by certain groups comparing the South to Nazis for the slavery issue.

It is too bad when one group decides to deny another group its heritage, but that is exactly what we're having in the US. I certainly don't deny that group any of their heritage and am always impressed at their ability to overcome such a negative way to live all those years, but that was 146 years ago.
