so how do you resolve the dichotomy... you have reverence for the men who fought under it...so it is honorable...yet you believe it is an insult to many people.. so by inference it is dishonorable...
Have to play a bit with this one, as well. I had nothing to do with its acquired insult. Its use by dishonorable people has nothing to do with me. There is no dichotomy. You and I and a whole bunch of other students of the wo-ah can see the CBF and the grunts who carried it proudly We are a minority. A small minority. A very small minority. A very, very small minority.

So long as that flag, square or rectangular, flies over Johnnie Reb, I will take off my hat or observe a moment of contemplative silence. Anywhere else is an affront to the men who fought under it.
