I saw a strange thing in Greenville yesterday.

I was heading into town on North Main Street, an old, old residential district. There among the smattering of American flags flying from front porches was an actual Confederate flag, not the battle flag, but the stars and bars. I'm still scratching my head over that one. This is the flag. Sorry it's so durned big.

I finally got Jackpine radical's fringe candidate image in my sig line. I hope. I'm going to miss JPR's posts but this will be a reminder.
