Decoration Day?

Decked out in GE light bulbs for Confederate Veterans’ Day in celebration of those domestic terrorists and enemy combatants who tried to overthrow the United States Government by force and violence? Getting an early start on promoting Thanksgiving sales figures? No, the monument will be lit up on November 17th to celebrate the birth of Baby Jesus.

Thanks to the keen eye of Jason Ivester of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for capturing this view of the Confederate Monument facing the Wal-Mart Museum on the Bentonville Square and giving us a look into the commercial Christmas soul of Northwest Arkansas.

Old times here are not forgotten. But in the state's most Republican of counties, it seems that Abraham Lincoln has been, along with his ideas about liberty and justice for all.
