Break with the Past

If you don't contradict yourself on a regular basis, then you're not thinking.

― Malcolm Gladwell

Three months ago, I insisted the 1,500 Confederate memorials peppering public spaces throughout the South should be preserved.

After Charlottesville, I have changed my opinion.

The monuments represent not only an eyesore to most African Americans, but a threat to public safety. They should be removed from the streets and parks where the former Confederates placed them.

Enough souls―625,000―perished in our Civil War.

No more need do so.

RIP, Heather Heyer.
