I went to watch some Ku Klux Klansmen hold a rally on a Civil War battlefield earlier today. Not many turned up. Here’s a story about it:

The Klansmen — who jostled for numerical superiority with a herd of cows grazing nearby — were watched by officers from the United States Park Police and about 15 spectators, as one of them explained how he believes Obama’s foreign, economic and immigration policies are threatening America.
