To The Daily Sun,
In response to Steve Earle, I'll quote Molly Ivins, who once wrote, "I prefer someone who burns the flag and then wraps themselves up in the Constitution, over someone who burns the Constitution and then wraps themselves up in the flag."
That is the difference between Mr. Earle and myself, and it keeps me warm at night. That and the fact that the old white population in this state and many others is dying out faster than it can replace itself. And why is that? It is due to an aging population making poor health choices, a lack of jobs to keep younger folks around, and a dearth of women willing to mate with whatever is left over.
So I'll invite Mr. Earle to go ahead and laugh away for the next four years, because the minority population is growing in this state and in this country and soon he and the rest of that band of uber conservative, racist, backwoods, misogynistic, GI Geritols will be dying out. And when that happens I'll gladly burn a flag over each of their graves and salute a better and brighter future.
