“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson

The Southern Way to Date Items
Before Noah Webster decided that everyone needed to write the same and speak the same, Southrons did things a little differently. Many Southrons are rejecting this idea of homogenisation, though. We are beginning to return to the way we have always done things which are considered proper and correct according to the Oxford English Dictionary which has been in existence a lot longer than Mr. Noah Webster. One of these things is the way we write a date. The original way to date things is with the day first, then month, then year. This is the way that Europeans still write their dates. For instance, today would be 17 December 2008 writtenly properly. We Southrons have always been proud of our heritage and proud of our dinstinctions and differences. This is just another little way that we can return to those things and celebrate being Southern.
