Sweet Southern Victory in Pensacola, Florida
On Thursday evening Escambia County’s board of county commissioners voted to remove the Confederate flag from the Pensacola Bay Center. This wouldn’t be such important news but for the fact that a certain Southern romance writer and blogger, who monitors what she calls “Flogger” blogs (like mine), happens to live there.
Below is a video of the meeting. The public testimony in favor of removal is really quite passionate. Unfortunately, the video does not include testimony from residents in favor of keeping the flag.
It’s not clear whether our “sweet” friend was in attendance. Perhaps she was too busy monitoring heritage violations elsewhere and overlooked what was happening in her own backyard. After four days of hard rain and clouds here in Boston it looks like the sun is coming out. Perfect timing. 🙂
