Robert E. Lee
General Robert E. Lee on his horse Trigger. This monument is a few blocks away here in Richmond. You might know that he is facing South, not North, because he had the duty to surrender to U. S. Grant. Here was a leader in the best tradition of our U.S. Army, but he felt it his duty to offer his services to the South in the Civil War.
I have found that blogging elsewhere than Warblogging is far more conducive to rational debates.
JasonJ and I have been going to and fro on Rousseau for weeks now, but he seems to spend less time at it at this point.
I hear you on the blogging elsewhere subject. Been hearing a lot about the straight dope site.. sounds like a lot of heated debates fire up there.. of course I will keep my eyes on your blog as well.. :)
