Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"To me it's a sort of feeling that it's just a nit. That it is not significant. It's trying to make a big deal out of something that doesn't matter for diddly." (Haley Barbour, former Mississippi Governor and RNC Chairman, on Virginia’s Confederate Heritage Month proclamation omitting slavery, April 11, 2010.)
