    I got a kick out of this blunder. Bulge.

    ......Mo. university chief sorry band played 'Dixie'
    AP – 45 mins ago......SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Missouri State University is apologizing after its band performed "Dixie" at a site where three black men were lynched in 1906.

    Interim President Clif Smart tells the Springfield News-Leader the song was an "unfortunate selection" and won't be played again in a public venue.

    The Confederate anthem has come to represent the ideology of the Old South.

    The school's Pride Band played "Dixie" at the Nov. 18 dedication of Park Central Square in Springfield, the southwest Missouri city where the university is located. A plaque identifies the square as the location where three black men were lynched more than a century ago.

    Smart says the band director didn't understand the significance of the song.

    The local NAACP president says "Dixie" was an inappropriate choice and sparked community complaints.

    I remember when it was a mandatory song to sing in music class.

    A while back I was watching "The View" on TV with my wife. The topic of discussion was the fact that VP Dick Cheney had gone to a gun club where the "Stars and Bars" flag was displayed. Whoopi commented that it was inappropriate for Cheney to be associated with any group displaying that flag because some Americans find it "offensive."

    REALLY??!! Many fine American men and women fought and died for the principles represented by that flag, and you, with all your PC bull_hit, find that "offensive"??

    This PC crap has gotten way out of hand. Play "Dixie" all you want. I like the tune and I'm a Yankee.

    Merry Christmas to all you Yankees and Rebels alike.

    It's a great song. Even Lincoln said that when he heard it, he wanted to get up and start marching.

    Too bad Dixie and the Confederate Battle Flag were hijacked by in-bred, yellow-toothed, neo-nazies, klaners, and bigoted half-wits. Those with more noble affections for Dixie and the Battle Flag should have stood up to those half-wits that turned those items into symbols for hateful and disgraceful racism.

    Sense the liberals want to destroy this country with their bull shit giveaway programs, and there way Wild Bill they think everyone except them should live. I got a fair Idea. I think we should re negitatie the North and South treaty and surrender to the South. That way someone else can worry about how this country is run. Wild Bill

    U.S. Grant -

    "I felt like anything rather than rejoicing at the downfall of a foe who had fought so long and valiantly, and had suffered so much for a cause, though that cause was, I believe, one of the worst for which a people ever fought, and one for which there was the least excuse. I do not question, however, the sincerity of the great mass of those who were opposed to us."

    The PC crowd can put their head back in where the sun don't shine!!

    I enjoy hearing Dixie as much as I enjoy God Bless America, Battle Hymn of the Republic, The Saints go Marching In and the Star Spangled Banner.

    If you can't stand Dixie, please leave the country, IT's part of OUR history get over it!!
