    If it's a positive symbol, I hope everyone gets it. I think speaking on national TV is like going to a job interview, you want to look nice, everyone makes judgements.

        wear a Union soldiers hat if he wants. Just like some Southerners wave the confederate flag in your face. I don't know what it is supposed to signify but it does set himself up for ridicule. Play dress up if you want, he looks like he belongs in this photo. A comedy.

          if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

            I'm thinking most take the wearing of civil war symbols less about honoring relatives and more about, "Ha, ha, we beat you". Or if you are on the other side, "Ha, ha, we will never forget the north's aggression. But I could be wrong. Is there a good southern ol' buddy out there? How is wearing Union soldier's garb taken? No prob, or is offense taken.
