Re: “Students Take Gun Violence Protest To Virginia State Capitol

And Realist, when your side loses they invent fictitious stories like 3 million undocumented folks voting for thr other side. Keep in mind that the current Resident is the popular vote loser by a wide margin.

Re: “Michelle Obama and Maya Lin Invited to Judge National Design contest to Rethink Monument Avenue

John Q. Private -- if progressives turn out to vote they can't be stopped, since there are more of them in the adult population than conservatives. How do you propose to stop them?

Scott -- JEB Stuart is most famous for what he did in open rebellion against the United States government, in support of forcing millions of people to work their whole lives, without pay, because they had a darker skin color.

You really think we should name a school after him?

Who's the moron?

Robbie Summey -- Whatever we do some people will act defensive, don't you think? What's the alternative, aside from the untenable status quo?

Carol is right. It does matter what we name our schools, as the name provides many teachable moments. Michael Paul Williams has a dozen excellent ideas. He didn't even float Oliver Hill and Spottswood Robinson. Willie Lanier Elementary School?

When we name a school after JEB Stuart we teach kids that it's OK to be a general i
fighting on the side of evil. It's not.

Also, the School Board can walk and chew gum at the same time. They can rename a school and consider other policies and the budget at the same time.

Great job, Carol!
