Your blog about changing the names of New Orleans landmarks, street, etc. mirrors my thoughts exactly, i.e., where does it stop. On a larger scale I am also curious as to the timing, referring to the picture of a lone wolf shooter holding a CSA battle flag. Why latch onto that as a catalyst to initiate a change now, when the flag has been around so long?
