It's nice to see Don Davis' letter in the Eureka Reporter this morning. He takes issue with Jim Garvey's earlier letter in regards the confederate flag flying at Ferndale High School.
Hopefully, Don will write another letter in response to our very own Rob Ash's My Word column in today's Times- Standard. Rob Ash seems to agree with Jim Garvey and I'll give Rob credit in that his My Word didn't come off as goofy to me as Garvey's letter.
At least it didn't until Rob started ragging on the confederacy. He seems to think the confederacy was the most evil institution in mankind's history. He suggests the War Between The States was an act of aggression against America by the confederacy.
Rob needs to be reminded that it was the North that invaded the South, not the other way around and that the southern states only wanted to secede from the union, not take over the northern states.
To Rob's credit, he did stop short of accusing the confederacy of causing AIDs and there is one thing I might come close to agreeing with Rob on:
While I don't have a problem with the confederate flag, I also don't have a problem with schools prohibiting items on campus that might be disruptive to the educational environment. We may argue about what items should or should not be allowed, but schools do have the right to establish rules to promote education.
Once again I can't find something I wanted to blog about on the Times- Standard's web site. Rob's My Word is strangely absent, at least for now. Probably some kind of confederate conspiracy.
