Around the weekend of April 26, a black city councilman down in Alabama passed by a cemetery and almost had apoplexy when he saw numerous graves decorated with Confederate flags.  Rushing in and snatching up all he saw, breaking them in half, he stalked off to raise a ruckus over his find.

A week or so later when he  had been thoroughly advised that April 26 is celebrated throughout the South as Confederate Memorial Day, and that CSA soldiers’ graves are annually decorated with flags of the Confederacy, he decided to pause…and reflect….and then change his mind.


In a statement before the council, he admitted he had no idea it was a war-related holiday,and that te flags are placed there annually to honor the deceased soldiers.

He admitted his error and apologized.  Mirabile dictu!
