Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Obama asked not to lay a wreath on the Confederate Veterans memorial.
On the one hand, the Civil War was about slavery (though more the political implications than the moral), and glorifying those who fought for slavery is kind of a bad thing; on the other hand, a small chunk of the Confederates were drafted, and it's not as if everybody in the South loved slavery and everyone in the North hated it. Was Obama right to deny the petition? Is it good politics? Good policy? Should maybe the next president stop doing it?
Note: I will cut the first person who compares the Confederates to the Nazis.
