A South Florida look at the Confederate Flag controversy

This week, we named the ginormous Confederate flag at I-4 and I-75 as one of the Top 10 Stories of the Year. Got some flack for it, too, along with columnist Daniel Ruth.

Here's an interesting take from a writer at the Miami New Times, another alt-weekly:

This whole idea of succession is kind of inspiring though. Not that I think South Florida should leave the union, but how about just this stupid, stupid state? The North can have their rifles, and belt buckles, and Amendment 2s, and Charlie Crists, and we can have all of the non-Disney tourism.

So where would that leave us?
