Happy Secession Day
150 years ago today, South Carolina issued its Secession Ordinance, thus starting the procession of slave states out of the Union. Whether through a failure of genes or education, or both, things haven't changed much between then and now. I think about what our response should be today to the Haircut Perrys and Zach Wamps of the nation (and Lincoln's party!!) who casually throw out the notion of "secession": I say, let 'em go, we're better off without 'em!
