After the tragic events that took place in Charleston this week, there is lots of talk about the Confederate flag flying over the state capitol building in Columbia, S.C., how that practice should be ended, etc.
UPDATE 6/20/2016: On their website, Jessica Rey Swimwear celebrates the first day of Summer with a 20% Discount code, ICECREAM20. You heard it here first. If you’re not familiar with this brand of swimwear, have a look at the post I wrote three years back.
