. . . There goes the Robert E. Lee"

It seems a bit ironic that removal of the somewhat misunderstood Rebel symbol at UNLV now seems to be something of a lightning rod for a modern civil war, so far mainly verbal, over disgust for political correctness and perceived symbols of divisiveness and hatred and tradition vs. change.

In the end symbolic things mean different things to different people. I do worry that this wonderful and diverse country of ours may be on the verge of another Civil War. Maybe the first one is still smoldering. I pray that we can learn to differ without losing respect for each other. In the Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi he succinctly states that, "it is in understanding that we are understood".

Sometimes it can be difficult to walk a mile in another man's shoes. Especially when athlete's foot is involved. (I threw that last sentence in for Z-Devil).
