First With the Least

Give credit where credit is due.

At first the Virginia Flaggers announced their plans to flag Washington & Lee University in September. They claimed they weren’t quite ready to use the ultimate weapon in their arsenal: besides, they needed to find out more about bathroom facilities.

Their words, not mine.

Then came word that other Confederate heritage groups were preparing to make a big splash at Washington & Lee next weekend. This appears to have taken the Flaggers by surprise: not only were they to lose their pride of place in the Old Dominion, but someone was aiming to get more publicity and credit.

You know how these things go.

It was left to one particularly courageous Flagger — no, not Susan Hathaway, silly … and not Norwood “Tripp” Lewis, either — to rush over to Lexington disguised as a beach bum or a fan of the Grateful Dead to hoist the Confederate battle flag at a corner of campus.

Jennings Flags WLUThis changes everything. Nice shades, by the way. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

“We never step onto the sidewalk until we have covered all of our bases and have all needed resources lined up and available.” Check. I guess that’s why Grayson’s on the grass.

    As if these clowns weren’t funny enough already, your play by play makes it all the more enjoyable. Sometimes I feel like I should spend some time on the circus myself, but they’re already in good hands. So I tell myself, why bother?

    I have to disagree with you on the shades. They are definitely overshadowed by the shorts and the deck shoes. Come on, Brooks. Get some new glasses. LOL
