PostIf We Cancel Robert E Lee, What About Jefferson...and Washington? (Edward Jajko, USA, 09/16/20 4:53 am)
John E commented on September 15th: "If Robert E Lee ends up 'canceled,' is there any reason that fellow slaveholders Jefferson and even Washington won't have to join him?"
And what happens then to Washington and Lee University, or Jefferson City, Missouri, Jeffersonville, Indiana, or Jefferson University and Medical School, Philadelphia, or the State of Washington?
JE comments: Ed, I still remember my 6th-grade class trip to Jefferson City. During the tour we learned that the correct name is "City of Jefferson." Missourians say "Jeff City"--but never "St Louie."
We could make a list here of epic proportions. The US capital may be overdue for two cancellations: Washington (egads!), District of Columbia (the horrors!). Perhaps, following the example of the former Washington Redskins, we could simply opt for the generic: "Capital City of the United States."
