We're watching Gone with the Wind today in Southern Women. I know that generations of fellow southerners will burn me at the stakes for saying this, but I. hate. this. movie. It gives us a bad name and has completely exaggerated and idealized a time period in which maybe 10% of plantations actually looked like Tara. MAYBE. Ok. Getting off of soapbox before I get hate mail.
That being said, I do love a good idyllic antebellum plantation, and "Tara" is no exception. So I'll be totin' my sweet tea down to Brock Forum for a three day reprieve from note taking. Sounds good.
