Happy Memorial Day!!!

I know what you're thinking.

Brandi, have you been huffing fabric softener again? Memorial Day isn't for another month.

Yes, as a matter of fact I have been huffing fabric softener, but today is Confederate Memorial Day in Georgia. State offices are closed. Ceremonies will be held.

Now maybe it's just because I'm a born and bred Yankee from New England, but I don't understand the whole Confederate pride thing. A group of people decided to go against the government of our country (which they had a hand in forming not terribly long before) and start a war where thousands of people of died. I think today we call those people terrorists.

To me, celebrating Confederate Memorial Day would be a little like erecting a monument honoring the 9/11 hijackers. Or the Nazis we killed.

I'm sorry that your great great great great great grandpa Jethro got killed in the Civil war, but that's what happens when you decide to start taking over military forts owned and operated by the U.S. Government.

Now get back to your trailer. Hee-Haw's on.
