more insanity (the southern version)

Posted in 2008, confederate flag, Florida, insanity by m.snowe on March 1, 2008

Running along the beach this morning, the display was ocean on one side, H.O.U.’s (Houses of Unusual Size) on the other. They were large by any estimation, and in colors not found naturally in any habitat found in picture books or the discovery channel. The beautiful views were obstructed, however, by one, single 2×2 piece of thin cloth: A confederate flag, hanging atop one of the highest houses. Let’s remind ourselves – this is Florida, USA, 2008. The beach experience has been corrupted more than any amount of stepping in cigarette butts could. How can a “progressive” country allow anyone to hang a flag like that for everyone to see? More reflections to come.
