    The silly idea of a name change is nothing more than one burying his head in the sand, or a Nixon era cover up....
    Man should never be ashamed of his past, but he must learn from it..

    I'm amazed at the stupidity of some people in academia. I wonder if they're going to quietly change the name back to Columbus Day?
    I'll bet you there were Harvard law graduates that protected the rights of slave owners a time or two; maybe Harvard should change its name.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
