Ok so i'm quoted and hate to tout other dudes but I thought Stewart, O'Rourke and Buckley took the cake in this one.

Tks, I've revisited aspects of Confederates in op-eds, and am at work on nother book on South, but prefer to leave Attic as is.

Tks, and chapter 5 opens at Redbone's Saloon on TN/KY line, a place where redneck and liberal don't belong in same sentence.

Finally, some good hurricane news. WPost: 'the World Meteorological Organization will retire the names Harvey and Irma after this season.'

Good question. As I recall, Cold Mt successfully fudges that, about horror of war rather than its politics, but he does serve with Rebs.

You at Chickamauga for 153rd? Reenacting blue or gray? Reenacting Bierce's story about it? Super hardcore!

Freddie Morrow still in super-max. Spoke to prosecutor in case the other day and even he thinks rebel flag and monuments should come down.

˙Hillbilly Elegy is an important read but so is this critique of the author's persepective

Tks, Yemen most fascinating of 55 countries I've visited and tragic to see ruin there now, partly due to U.S. support of Saudis

Missed start of this thread, but Robert Lee Hodge was/is maestro of authenticity when it comes to CW soldier experience, super hardcore.

Nice look at how S Africa is handling its statues, conflict but also historical nuance and attempt at middle ground

I can't access comments, curious to hear this b/c reaction directly to me has been mild for the most part.

no secret, unless it's that journalism isn't that hard. he reached out to me in this instance, then you just ask questions and listen.

Tks, I cant get past WSJ paywall to see it and I'm sure Walt, the neo-Nazi in my piece, would blame this on the Jewish-controlled media

My take on changes in memory of South's past since I wrote Confederates in the Attic. Hardcores, Scarlett, a few other oldies revisited.

Not yet, but creator, John Sims, will likely post something before long. Music interspersed with responses, in my case to funkified Dixie.

Tks, I think you'll find chapters 4 and 5 particularly (and sadly) relevant to battle over Confederate symbols and what they connote.
