George Wallace

" . . . would you believe this man has gone as far
as tearin' Wallace stickers off the bumpers of cars?
and he voted for George McGovern for president
. . . "

--Charlie Daniels
Visiting Florida with my favorite doll, circa 1968. Some wise-guy redneck put that awful hat on my head.

Thankfully, Wallace found God in the late 1970's and apologized to civil rights leaders for his earlier segregationist views. "I was wrong. Those days are over and they ought to be over." I think he meant it because when he was governor of Alabama in the 1980's, he appointed a record number of African-Americans to government positions.
