Thanks for the compliment (“literary”).
I lived in the Deep South for 8 years, but you’re the first person I’ve encountered who referred unironically to the Rebellion as the War of Northern Aggression. (Who attacked whom at Ft. Sumter?)

Antonin Scalia cited the Dred Scott decision as a disastrous deviation from originalism and textualism that set a precedent for later judicial activism and overreach. But what did he know?
