It appears that we are on the verge of yet another controversy in Lexington, Virginia, and it may be of interest to regular readers of this blog.
On July 8, 2015, the following ad appeared in the Lexington (Va) News-Gazette:
The ad (and the paper’s decision to run the ad) has created a lot of controversy. The paper is hearing about it on its Facebook page, and it’s deciding how to respond.
Billboard Hill Lane is located northeast of Lexington, west of I-64/I-81. There are several billboards there … and there’s something else flying in the neighborhood. Care to guess what it is?
Are we to assume that Karen Cooper’s no longer welcome to go to Billboard Hill north of Lexington to look at her beloved Confederate flag while reminding us that “slavery’s a choice”? Hint: she’s not a Democrat, so that shouldn’t bother her.
