Me drunk on Lee-Jackson Day in the wee hours of the morning in Richmond, Monument Blvd. I was lucky to live only a few blocks from these beauts.

I lived at the corner of Monument and Boulevard in a boarding house off-and-on for a couple of years and I never noticed the monuments.  Nor did I pay any attention to those in Bath County while growing up there.  But this one at Gettysburg seemed special; in fact the entire battlefield seemed extraordinary.  Note: not my photos.

Easy, you put a young hayseed male of drinking age (18 at the time) in the hedonistic fan-region of Richmond and expect him to notice some damned statue?
 
My first trip to the local laundromat set the tone for my stay in Richmond.  This young gal came in wearing short cutoffs and some sort of midriff-revealing top.  The first thing I noticed was her long beautiful legs AND the distance between those legs at their point of attachment.  I remembered what that Hokie professor had told us about how to measure the ‘lay potential’ of a gal; you look for the gap distance (please note, this was the 70s).    She caught my ogling, and we conversed.  After introductory pleasantries she flat out asked why I had been scrutinizing her, and I flat out told her about what I had learned in class at VT, after all it was biology.  She was touched, impressed, and obviously flattered.  That was the beginning of the Richmond chapter of my life, and likely the primary reason I did not see any monuments or statues. 

The other reason probably has to do with my wiring.  I cannot multitask.   Driving or walking a street means driving or walking a street.  Monuments, memorials, statues, etc. in a historical setting when I am focused makes sense to me.  I never considered that part of Richmond as historical; I was most likely wrong, BUT I shall not return to find out!

Touted as heroic by liberal media, this vandal rips a flag off the back off a truck in a traffic jam!

That would be racist.

Not a smart move by the guy. What if the object removed had been Japan’s Rising Sun flag, Germany’s Imperial War flag, Siegel rune, or the Swastika?  Would our castigation be the same?
