FEEDBACK:  On past, air conditioning and pensions

P.C. Coker, Charleston: “As Theodore White said in the Making of the President 1960, three things were the center of American discourse after World War II, civil rights, television, and the bomb. To that I would add for the South, air conditioning. [Brack: South has come a long way in 100 years]  I am one of the last people around who can remember a summer without air conditioning and back then we lived from day to day for a place to cool off.”

BRACK: It’s about to get a whole lot more interesting

BRACK: It’s about to get a whole lot more interesting

By Andy Brack, editor and publisher | The South is not completely red politically, just as it is not home to only rednecks.

Come November 8, Southerners will cast about 33 million votes in this oddest and nastiest of presidential elections. Of those, more than 15 million will be for the Democrat, Hillary Clinton. That’s a lot of blue living in what most assume is just red.

Yes, our region, just like our nation, is more purple than just red or blue. In Southern state and federal elections, we’re a reddish purple. In many urban areas in the South, we skew a little more blueish purple.
