Growing up as poor white Yankee trash, my first exposure to the Confederate battle flag was the Dukes of Hazzard.

(Alas, I was also too young to appreciate the tremendous… talent that Catherine Bach brought to the show.)

And it is in this gallantly rebellious spirit that I know many view the Southern Cross. As Ace put it, it often means “fuck you”.

I guess there’s Gadsden…
