"Dickheads," I thought, shaking my head.
Yeah, yeah! "Heritage," is their argument. Gotta keep the faith, dude. Yeh, I get it. I mean, half my lineage is North Carolina/Virginia-way anyhow. I enjoy the people, they talk funny, I have a good time when I'm there. So to the good ol' boys of the deep south: the flag offends, but I believe you mean it, those of you who indulge in flying the Starz'n Barz, when you say it's about your heritage. I'm nuanced, I can go there.
But these assholes are from Maine! How many Confederates were in Maine during those, uhm, Heritage days? If there was one, he was a spy. Know what I mean?
Homey don't play that, and neither do I.
Update: And don't get me started on the wind-drag a flag that big can increase in gas costs there, bud!
