Some of you may have heard about the "world famous Redneck Shop" in Laurens SC that sells Confederate memorabilia, KKK robes, etc. A black church now holds title to the building, but under the terms of the deed, they can't kick the Redneck Shop out until its owner dies!

I've been past the place many times, but have never gone inside. Laurens is about a 15-minute drive away. A lawyer friend of ours has his office a few doors down the street.

William Faulkner couldn't have written a better story. I've known a few KKK members and as the story suggests they tend to be their own worst victims these days. That they joined the church and the woman still prays for forgiveness says it all.
