14. Well, they don't know reenactment. Disney ugh
I think reenactors are really terrific people. They preserve and honor history. If they tell you reenactors aren't over it, ask them why they're not shooting each other in the ass.

There are a lot of corporate interests up here trying to trash the battle fields. The resistance to that is significant. When you replace your history with a theme park, you live in 'fantasy land' forever. Disney got it's ass handed to it. They met the New Army of Northern Virginia.

BTW, we do have a Republican legislature for the first time in anyone's memory. They tried to reinterpret Jefferson's/Mason's constitution (VA's ruling document) by saying religion and state were one. The 'sane' Republicans plus the Democrats knocked the sucker out of the park in a two hour debate. You can do a lot of stupid things in Virginia, or at least try, but the one thing we don't allow here is for someone to mess with Jefferson and the other notables. The legislature also considered a resolution to outlaw thongs and baggy pants. That lost too, even without a clear position by Jefferson.

Keep the faith!
