Iam sorry to have missed yesterday’s meeting of the newest chapter of the League of the South, which has been organized in Anniston, Alabama. The John C. Calhoun Chapter held their first meeting yesterday at the local Western Sizzlin’ where the organization’s national president, Michael Hill, railed against the abuses of the federal goverment. I can’t stop laughing as I imagine Hill addressing an audience that is continually making its way to the buffet bar to load up on as much bad steak as possible for $5.95. To be honest, I am not so much interested in what was said as I am in the total cholesterol level of the group.
