Southern Violence, Southern Honor

I enjoyed reading the article and learning more about the South’s past. As you well noted, the South’s historic code of honor and the violence manifested in that heritage also have contributed to today’s problems of drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, and other social ills plaguing citizens’ everyday life. During my administration I have worked long and hard to remedy some of these far-reaching problems.
