I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

Blazing Cat Fur reports that a San Francisco school named for Abraham Lincoln will be renamed “because the former president did not demonstrate that ‘black lives mattered to him’.” The district plans to remove other names from schools including George Washington, Herbert Hoover, and Dianne Feinstein. Senator Feinstein’s name will be stricken because she allowed the Confederate flag to fly outside City Hall back in 1984 when she was mayor.

  1. I think nothing ought to be named after a politician until they have been dead for 100 years, If you still want to honor them 100 years later, have at it.

    In my local county, scores of parks and buildings are named after local politicians who are completely insignificant and represent the worst of politics.

    We have artists, animals, etc. we can use for names of places. The Elmo Zumwalt Regional Recreation Center just doesn’t do it for me.
