Today on Axis of Evel Knievel, David Noon marks the anniversary of South Carolina’s 1860 Ordinance of Secession from the United States. With his usual flair. Do go have a look.

Charleston Mercury, 20 Dec 1860

Acknowledging his somewhat simplistic argument and the drama in his voice, I think it’s a succinct summation of how I fundamentally view the event, also.

I’d be interested to have nominations from either of my readers for other published commentaries of fewer than 500 words that do as well as Mr Noon’s. From any perspective, pro or con.

I’m especially interested in views in direct opposition to this one.
