More of the 'you can't make this stuff up' stuff - Confederate Flag edition

I'm not a big fan of the Confederate flag being displayed in modern times, because it really IS an anathema to many people, but the idea that you should hold the Franklin Civil War commemoration without the Confederate Flag OR antique rifles (safetyfirstdamnit!), is kind of like holding the Passion Play without a cross (don't want people to think we are aligned with the Klan) and Jesus (don't you think we need to be ecumenical?).

Kleinheider and Braisted (and I'm sure many others have already covered this territory).

In fairness, Mayor Miller is back-pedaling on this now, but the thought process that led to the original proclaimation is somewhat frightening.
