Save Lee Chapel

 Via Billy

One of the true treasures of Washington and Lee's campus is under threat from the administration and it's time to fight back. In Lee Chapel (which it now calls University Chapel), all plaques and portraits have come down. A giant dividing wall is going up. The chapel is already stark and bare without its memorials to heroic students and historic portraits. Soon, it will be unrecognizable.

A Red Wave? So What?


There is a vast political swell among some ill-informed conservatives that the great mid-term elections will come and a tide of goodness (spelled R-E-P-U-B-L-I-C-A-N) will sweep over the grand land, often puerilely referred to as “American exceptionalism,” for everyone.

Everyone but conservatives, however. Yes, that’s what I meant.  Conservatives are republicans. Republicans are Republicans. They aren’t goodness or even good. They love lobbyists and their wars and printed money as much as their “loyal” opposition loves it. Conservatives are the few. Republicans and Democrats are the many.

They both live politically on the blood lust of “presentism” –look it up—but don’t reach for public teachers in any educational offering for it. Without it, the past is not, indeed, prologue.
