A Cold Civil War?

America is divided today. Ideologically, we are split as we were when blue and gray armies faced off at Bull Run, though so far no armies have merged to back the vitriolic rhetoric indulged in by both sides in our emerging "cold civil war." The Civil War of 1861-1865 emerged from the national debate over slavery. The cold civil war we have today emerged, oddly enough, on college campuses.
