Protecting our native fabric

I mean, I guess that’s what all this is about, right?

There are three Lowndes Counties in the States: in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. All three are named for William Jones Lowndes (1782-1822), who represented a South Carolina district in Congress. The Alabama county has a particularly prickly history with regard to civil rights. Lowndes himself is perhaps best known for suggesting an alternate method of apportioning seats in the House of Representatives, which would have assigned more seats to smaller states; it did not catch on.

But perhaps this isn’t political at all. Maybe, just maybe, it’s the baneful influence of — dare we say it? — Satin?

    That’s just too lamé for words.

    I figured I could get by with it in such a close-knit group as this.
