Love Wins open line: And a Confederate flag is coming down

Here's today's open line and video news roundup. A reader on the mailing list of the 21c Museum Hotels shared the art work on a special offer for rooms for those planning weddings. The hotels include one in Bentonville, Ark. Just noting.


* GO AWAY DIXIE FLAG: The South Carolina Senate voted today to remove a Confederate flag from a pole on Statehouse grounds. Private citizens remain fully empowered to put it on a pole, car, T-shirt, church, home, office, dog, baby, cat, beer cozee, bikini, Frisbee or where the sun don't shine.

PS: A two-thirds House vote is required to complete action in South Carolina.

* SCOTT WALKER'S FAMILY FOR PRESIDENT: Refreshing. The wife of Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker says his sons disagree strongly with his criticism of the same-sex marriage ruling and she's not too hot about it either, given that a married lesbian cousin is one of her closest relatives. And that, in a nutshell, is why the American tide is turning. Hard to hate people you know, as opposed to abstractions.
