continued Thatfucker discussion

Since we've been kicked off FFA for the week, please feel free to continue the anon discussion here. Apologies if this is a big flop - I've never made a DW community before!

The rules are vaguely the same as they are over on FFA. Please refrain from being too much of an asshole, making personal attacks, posting identifying information or engaging in transfail.

ETA: If there's information you'd like to see archived (journal/blog posts related to Andy, etc.), please dump it here and link to it from the main post for discussing.

I suspect this is directly related to growing up in Virgina. Even if you are not pro-Confederacy, the stuff is lazy.

I'm in a different part of the state, but drive down Jefferson Davis Highway on my way to work, my commute takes me from Robert E Lee's childhood home to Arlington (which was once largely his property).

God forbid I go down to Richmond. There are enough people around descended from the Civil War era leaders that it's easy and lazy.

Similar to a group of people in LA all being the grandchildren of silent film actors.

Yeah, as a southerner, I'm not nearly as surprised about this as some others have been. The Confederacy is an easy go-to down here.
