    Shameful or not, it is our history and a really horrible chapter at that. Confederate memorials, to me, don't honor slave owners. They remind us of what we dare not repeat again which is have a country so divided we pit families against each other in battle. Ironically, those memorial statues are being used for precisely that purpose, to drive us apart.

    They can remind you on private property or in a museum. Polio was part of our history too, but we don't put up monuments commemorating it.

    There is no comparison between Polio and the Civil War. We did not choose to get Polio. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Those words are just as true today as they were 150 years ago.
