    Black Rose Ceremony would be an excellent name for an girl alt rock group.

      Watching this, another alt rock band name came to mind: the Dry Heaves.

      An old grave site that never has any mourners is a sad thing, but surely faux mourners are worse. I’m not even sure this is reenacting — ritualized performance art, maybe? Lost Cause victimology taken to its logical end?

      We’re all Confederate widows, now.

    Now that is something I would never believe was happening. Shocking really!
