  1. Oh my, thank you for linking to her response on the controversy. I’m knee-deep in the South, and this is all very fascinating to me. I’ve personally had it with the two or three ban-this-movie forwards I’ve already received, and I think it’s only just begun. I’m considering an Open Letter to Anyone Considering Forwarding These Emails To Me at 7-Imp!
