"A proposed Texas license plate created to honor Confederate veterans is under fire from elected officials who have vowed to protest the plate’s Confederate flag design, the Houston Chronicle reports. 'We cannot allow the state to issue a symbol of intimidation,' U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston, said to a crowd of community leaders outside the Civil Courthouse Saturday. ... Sen. Rodney Ellis, D-Houston, said that allowing these license plates would be allowing the people who lost a war to write history." [editor's note: That last statement speaks volumes about what "historical fact" actually means; he's anot concerned about "political correctness" ... just with maintaining the ruler's version of history - SAT] (10/23/11)
