The nullification open line

Posted By on Sun, Feb 17, 2013 at 5:11 PM

Lovely day until I went to "Lincoln". It was a bit slow but the downer was the scene about the call to postpone the vote on sending the 13th amendment to the states. Too much like today's Arkansas Republicans and health care for working people. "Postpone the vote!"

Meanwhile comes word that Mississippi has finally officially ratified the abolition of slavery.

Over to you.
