Rhode Island to change its name
The official name of Rhode Island includes the word Plantations. And we all know what that word means. So Rhode Island will in all likelihood drop it from its official name. Nothing much to see, except how I remember the olden days of liberalism, when we were taught to scoff at the old timers who used to obsess about such things. How small minded they were when they wouldn't let someone say this, or say that. How not in tune with the heart and soul of the First Amendment were those who insisted on some lofty moral standard by which all Americans should be measured. For me, that's the funniest thing about post-liberalism. We are doing the very things that the forebears of the post-modern left had once railed against as part of the move to tear down the foundational fabrics of American society. Having torn them down, of course, it is time to rebuild in the manner of our brave new world. So things like this, because it offends the new moral standard by which all Americans should be measured, must change. History, you just can't help but repeat it.
