This whole business makes me think the British have the right idea regarding the commemoration of treason. We should have an annual Jefferson Davis day, but along the lines of Guy Fawkes day, not a fancy-dress ball for neo-confederates. If we’d spent the last century and a half burning them in effigy, maybe we wouldn’t have to suffer people with confederate flag decals on their trucks questioning the patriotism of New Yorkers.
