The KKK, supposedly a SECRET organization, has a newsletter? Of course, I am not surprised they haven't upgraded to an email list.

Replies? Hmm. How about, "Did he see former Sen. Trent Lott at the last reunion?" (O.K., that's not fair. There is no evidence that Lott has ever been in the Klan--unlike Robert Byrd. He just speaks and writes for successor groups to the White Citizens Councils.)

For the record, I oppose all secret organizations. Not just racist ones like the KKK, but even the Shriners, and, of course, Yale's elitist "Skull and Bones." I wish Baptists would return to the days when belonging to a secret organization could get you "churched."
