On Jan. 17, more than 47,000 people marched on South Carolina's Statehouse to
protest the flying of the Confederate flag. What do you think?  "Hasn't South
Carolina learned anything since the days of the Civil War? On second thought,
I think I'd rather not know the answer to that question." Anthony Banks,
Systems Analyst.
