OUCH OUCH-! That one hits me "at home" so to speak. ;) But truly there are cars driving around in this crummy state with that & other such stickers.

Davis's last home is here in town & it's been turned into something of a shrine. It's an antebellum home on the beach called Beauvior. Many years ago, I worked there one summer as one of the tour-guide people. Since I am a nut for Civil War history it was an interesting little job to have.

Jeff Davis was an interesting guy - very talented politically & militarily. It's a shame he spent so much of his life desperately trying to perpetuate the existence of the "peculiar institution."
