Confederate flag removed; Court to release statement

A few minutes ago, I received word that the Confederate flag that had been flying in place of the state flag at the Mississippi Supreme Court has been taken down.  It is my understanding from people at the Court that the Confederate Battle Flag was raised in place of the state flag in error, and that a statement will be released soon.

Not good timing for a mistake like this, coming right on the heels of new nullification bills being filed in the Mississippi Legislature.
