In his book, "Lee: The Last Years," author Charles B. Flood tells the story of a post Civil War encounter between the South's war general and a lady from Kentucky. General Robert E. Lee was taken by the lady to the remains of a once majestic tree in her front yard where she cried with bitter remorse that its limbs and trunk had been destroyed by Union artillery fire.
General Lee contemplated the situation for a brief moment. This lady was looking for his condemnation of the north. So he spoke, "Cut it down, my dear Madam, and forget it."
"Forgive and forget" is what they tell us. Or was it, "Kiss and make up," or "Bury the hatchet"? Regardless of what they say, is it realistic?
In my previous entry, I referenced to the Coeur d'Alene, ID, law requiring the owners of a small wedding chapel to perform same-sex marriages or face jail time and fines.
On Monday, October 20, the Washington Times reported, quoting from the Daily Signal, "The Knapps [owners of the Hitching Post wedding chapel] face a 180-day jail term and a $1,000 fine for each day they decline to celebrate the same-sex wedding."
