...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

Uh...what century are we in? Bartcop brings to attention this headline: "Georgia Governor Approves New Flag, Urges Calm" -- evidently, the governor of Georgia decided not to have the state's flag linked to slavery and racism. And thus, his consituents are pissed. Bartcop says it best: "The new flag's appearance prompted shouts of 'Sellout' and 'Stalin' from a small group of white Republicans who were disappointed that there isn't more slavery in their state flag".

In a related story, at Georgia's Taylor County High School, they have a segregated prom. Last year was the first integrated prom they ever had. So I guess they don't want to make that mistake again.

Not that I normally criticize other states when my own is swirling down the toilet bowl...but (in the words of maru) WTF?? Have ALL the lights gone out in Georgia????
