we’re #1-)

should it stay or should it go?-/

this morning i attended rich gillespie’s civilwar walking tour

and of course saw the statue in front of the loco courthouse

gillespie noted that it was put up to honor the dead after 50 yrs, and that it was not needed to enforce jim crow, a black man having recently been lynched with barbed wire

of course it was not _intended_ to intimidate, but it certainly _reminded_ blacks who really won:-/

and dont forget there are no confederate monuments to longstreet, who committed the sin of enforcing black rights:-/

so if this statue is not taken down, it should be modified to reflect the fact that these traitors were _not_ hanged, perhaps with a cut noose on his neck, hmmm?-/

commonground caper:-/

parcel J got torn up yesterday:

apparently by the same disturbed person who made the mailbox deposits, and is in custody.

the hoa will have to decide whether to seek restitution, but we should also decide if we want to make a rice paddy…numerous homeowners have expressed interest in using the common ground for community gardens;-)

heavy traffic on common ground;-)
