The first time that I visited my in-laws at their retirement home in North Carolina, we visited Fort Macon, a Civil War fort. The tour guide told us about its distinguished history during the “War of Northern Aggression.”
“What’s the War of Northern Aggression,” I whispered to Steve. “It’s the Civil War, you Northern moron,” he said.
I don’t get the South. And I don’t get Paula Deen. I’m sure that she’s a very nice lady, but she’s clearly living in a different world from the rest of us.
