The War Really Isn't Over

The War of Northern Aggression claimed another casualty. First, there was the guy killed by an exploding shell. This past Saturday, someone was shot. (He's OK, though.) From the WAVY TV in Virginia:
    A man participating in a Civil War reenactment was shot Saturday afternoon, according to the Isle of Wight County Sheriff's Department.

    The incident happened around 12:30 p.m. at the fairgrounds, about three miles outside of Windsor on Route 258.

    This wasn't your typical reenactment. Tom Lord was one of many men acting out a scene for a film being made about the Civil War. During that filming, Lord was shot...for real.

    Speaking only to WAVY.com, Tom says he isn't as worried about the damage done to his body. He's more concerned with the damage this could do to the reputation of reenactment.
Hmmmmm... Posing as a reenactor and shooting Yankees... Lee should have tried that ruse at Gettysburg.

Shooting Yankees is fine, so long as they shoot a few White Sox while they're at it.
