The AP reports that under a tax passed in 1903, Alabama residents are still paying an extra portion of property tax to support Confederate War veterans - even though the last one died in the 1930’s. $400,000 of the tax money goes towards the upkeep of Confederate Memorial Park.
- I hope they don’t close the park before this summer’s 146th annual production of “Damn Yankees”!
- So apparently the South not only won’t admit it lost the Civil War, it won’t admit that the guys who fought in it are dead.
- I think the tax money they collect should go to dead people in Chicago… at least they still vote!
