    WHEN is that thing in the picture going to be completed??? The picture eludes to the probability that we are AT least 3 months away. (September???)

    Don’t get me wrong. I’m excited about a nice, new, shiny, purpose built CF gym….but it’s been awhile since last September.

    Today’s article was an interesting read except for the snarky jab.

    (I note that I’m not concerned here with self-proclaimed libertarians who join neo-Confederate organizations or claim that southerners established a new country and fought a devastating war for some reason other than the slavery on which their social and economic system rested; I just want to address libertarians who hate slavery but seem to overlook its magnitude in their historical analysis.)

    Mr. Boaz needs to review his history beyond the basic revisionist text of a high school sophomore. Yes, slavery was an issue in the Civil War. But, it was not the issue leading to the conflict. The North fought to preserve the Union, the South fought for home and hearth. Only 10-15% of Southerners owned slaves at the outset of war. Vanishingly few front line Southern soldiers were slave owners. The emancipation of slaves had very little support in the North at the outset of the war, recall that the emancipation proclamation was an Executive Order signed in 1863, a full 2 yrs after onset of hostilities. Interestingly, only slaves in Southern states were freed, not the North. The emancipation proclamation was an attempt to interfere with the Confederacies ability to wage war, at the time it was not viewed as the moral milestone that we see it today. It was a military tactical move.

    Now, I have no interest in neo-Confederate organizations (whatever those might be) but I do have an interest in an accurate view of American history.

    Briskly walked the 3 mile course at the Big Cove Greenway with the dogs and hubby. I think my hubby was thinking “Let’s go for a walk” meant a leisurely stroll–haha, poor guy–I was booking it, determined to get my heart rate up a little bit. Was glad to get out and enjoy the nice weather, though, before laundry, yard and house chores took over the rest of the day!
