A five star read!

This book pretends to have a serious argument, and to present it with humor. It fails at both. In the first place, I never find ethnic humor funny. Laughing at others with whom we differ just does not sit well with me. Bear in mind that I am no Confederate sympathizer. Quite the opposite. I believe a good case could be made for the argument of letting the South go its own way. But this book is not it.
