Visual bonus

MoneyLaw and its sister sites place a premium on visual impact. With that goal in mind, I present a comic strip that illustrates an ancient post with continuing currency — Jamming wireless networks (November 2006):

Doonesbury, 11/11/07

This Doonesbury strip came courtesy of Professor Nancy Marder, who presented a paper on November 12 as part of the University of Louisville's faculty workshop series. Nancy's presentation concerned the use of cameras in the courtroom; during the discussion of her paper, the related question of laptops in the classroom arose. And behold, Doonesbury was addressing the same subject.

Google "Maurice Bessinger" and "Confederate Flag" or "race" or, to choose a phrase you used recently, "lost cause." You'll be reading for a while.

He's one of those people who sort of defines who we are and how we are perceived. I don't mean that as a compliment.

NVB,

I am informed by my other South Carolina contacts that Maurice Bessinger did indeed represent a certain strain of the Old South. I concur with your unspoken sentiment.

The reprinting of the Maurice's BBQ catalogue cover here should not be construed as an endorsement of Mr. Bessinger's politics.

Thanks, as always.

Fair enough. Just wasn't sure if you knew the history.

NVB,

Upon a few minutes' further contemplation, I altered this post. It's a shame that Maurice's in Columbia, Ollie's in Birmingham, and a legendary place in Tift or Lowndes County, Ga., whose name I have forgotten have all served up heaping helpings of things besides barbecue and side dishes -- at least at certain points in their history.

I'll leave your comment and my responses in the commentary as evidence that (1) I did originally post an image associated with Maurice's Gourmet BBQ in Columbia, S.C., and (2) I took it down upon further contemplation, prompted by your comment.

After all, when some people retract or modify their posts, they have no problems explaining why ;-).
