My apologies.  I should not have gone off like that.  There are many
wonderful people in saint Louis who are as 'color-blind' (insert
ethnicity of choice for color as needed) in the good sense of the word.  

Not that California (birth state) has a lack of emotion about
Hispanic/racial/ethnic	issues.  

Side note - Did you know that General Baca's (ret.) - he was a
Mexican-American speaker we had two years ago -  Sister-in-law is from
South America (Peru  IIRC ?) and thinks Mariachi music should be made
illegal? Well, not really <grin>  but she says it grates on the ears...
apparently classical music is the pinnacle of some South American
countries ideal music.	More evidence that 'people in a box' approaches
are dysfunctional.

As to the Confederacy thing - I know that my co-worker (from Louisiana)
tells me that Louisiana voted to stay in the Union until Lincoln levied
troop quotas to go fight their 'relations' in the seceded states.  Then
Louisiana reconvened and seceded.  Take a look at Southern tariff
(taxes)
payments to the Federal Government prior to 1861 and see why Lincoln
couldn't afford to let the South secede without going bankrupt as a
nation.  I suspect that in a break up of the US there would not be six
much less eleven states together due to current differences.

Gracias,
Glenn (somewhat embarrassed by his post)

Hx, SF, and Fx: 6 mm figures, Starships and 1:6K "Wet Navy" warships
are my main interest.	But I have forces in 6 through 25 mm FWIW...
