With the recent movement to purge our society of anything related to the Old South, I must acknowledge my personal shame. The stars and bars is being removed from flagpoles everywhere. The Dukes of Hazzard sitcom has been dropped by TV Land, there has even been talk of renaming military bases currently honoring Confederate generals so I feel I must do my part.
You see, my middle name is Lee. My family hails from Wisconsin so it’s pretty unlikely that I was named in honor of Robert E. Lee. Heck I could have been named after Brenda Lee, Bruce Lee, or Lee Marvin for all I know. But, to be safe I think I should get rid of than name. At least until this country gets a clue about history.
