Members of the South Carolina legislature have been notified that they are scheduled to return to Columbia, SC on Monday to tackle vetoes and the debate on the removal of the Confederate flag from the statehouse grounds. Reports from the Charleston Post and Courier indicate that a two thirds majority exists in support of the removal of the flag and that "a vote in the Senate could potentially occur that same day." 

Yesterday, with epic timing on the Fourth of July, about one thousand people gathered at the capitol for a "Take Down the Flag" rally that was as much a celebration as a maneuver for political change. Outside of an incident involving the detainment of Muhiydin Moye D'Baha after burning a piece of paper resembling a Confederate flag following the conclusion of the rally, the event itself appeared to go on without a hitch.
