Toppling party postponed again

One thing we can say about the neo-confederates in New Orleans.  They sure can afford an awful lot of fancy lawyering.
The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeal issued an order Friday morning (March 25) that prevents the city of New Orleans from taking down Confederate monuments while a lawsuit challenging its ability to do so makes its way through court.
In all likelihood they're still going to lose. We're going to take the monuments down.  Pretty impressive that these dead-enders have been able to drag it out this long, though. But that's how entitlement works, I guess.
