You know what really sucks?    How would you like to be the economic development / business recruitment guy in Danville, Wytheville or other VA cities where they are flying those gigantic confederate flags?  It has to be killing their efforts to attract businesses.....

Personally think that the agitators are causing a lot of negative economic effects
