As I said some time ago, the Virginia Flaggers had no intention of ceasing their efforts to fly Confederate flags along I-95 with their initial effort near Chester, Virginia. As Susan Hathaway has declared:
I-95 Memorial Battle Flag #2 is VERY near completion. The pole and flag (which are twice as tall and big as Flag #1) are paid for, but we are looking for assistance in covering the cost of installation, which will require the rental of a crane. Please consider a donation to help us wrap this one up…
One way you can help is by going to eBay to bid on a copy of the DVD for Gods and Generals autographed by Ron Maxwell. Bidding ends on March 14, so hurry up.
They say that if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. It appears that Hathaway and company learned from the missteps surrounding their initial foray into a business that other organizations have pulled off without much trouble. In fact, they’ve taken my advice to find a taller flagpole and to proceed without the usual self-serving fanfare. Nothing could make me happier.
As for the rest, it will be the same story all over again, and that bores me. I plan to step back and watch others say and do whatever they need to say and do. But for those of you who find such things to be a matter of great excitement, have fun.
