A day late here, but for the last few years I've been checking in on my old stomping grounds to see whether Greenville, SC is finally celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Well, yesterday, they finally did. Hooray, Greenville.

Of course, as the article notes, those march in King's honor at the Sate House in Columbia still got to take in the Confederate flag, which still graces a Civil War monument on the grounds. Will someone clue those nostalgic folks in favor of the flag into the fact that there's no such place as "the Confederacy"? Ya'll lost, OK! Over 140 years ago.

"All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality." -Martin Luther King Jr

See, King knew we were hitched to everything.
