    As I said in my earlier comment, the flag is behind the Confederate War Memorial, not visible when looking directly at the statehouse.  It was place there as part of a compromise that included construction of an African-American memorial (celebrating their contribution to the state), which is closer in on the statehouse grounds.  So, for now, the angst (and the battle) over the flag has died down.  There are still some die hard, vocal defenders of the flag and those who demonstrate to have it taken down (one African-American preacher chained himself to the thing a few years back).  Most of us are content to accept the armistice for now. By the way, Richland County (which is where Columbia and the statehouse and the flag reside) is a Democratic county and voted for Obama by almost 50,000 votes.

    Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. (attributed to) Greg King
