"After Confederate History Month"


Via Ta-Nehisi Coates it looks like Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell’s flubbing of the Confederate History Month issue early in his term is going to lead to some enduring good:

Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) announced Friday morning that he will declare April 2011 “Civil War in Virginia” month, rather than “Confederate History Month,” as he offered a humble apology for a proclamation this year that omitted reference to slavery’s role in the war.

Maybe we can do something about Jefferson David Highway right across the river from the DC, running conveniently alongside the Pentagon.
