South Carolina is too small for a republic and too large for an insane asylum

So said James Louis Petigru in 1860, as South Carolina seceded from the union. The phrase bears repeating.

  1. Well, considering some of the ridiculous nonsense the gun-grabber and anti-gun crowd has been spouting, secession is a valid topic for discussion. I'm surprised FALIB is so politically incorrect as to toss out the trauma-inducing phrase "insane asylum". We don't call them "insane", and we don't call them "asylums". We call them "mental health illness disorder challenged", and "residential treatment facilities for those who experience emotional or mental health illness issues".... Dang, don't you know ANYTHING?
