A Kinder, Gentler Klan?


By Colin Woodward

Saw this post on someone’s Facebook today about the KKK in northern Georgia adopting a highway. I’m not sure if the folks in the picture in the article are waving to the camera or giving a fascist salute. But, I’m glad the Klan hates litterbugs, too. (Photo source: Arete 13 on Flickr).
