    I am sad for my country, state and city. When will this insanity stop? What is next? When you have no past, you have no future.

    The Alamo stays but every statue and placard around it will be changed out. San Jacinto, Bexar and Goliad will all get the same treatment.

    Heard on the radio that there are over 20 new confederate statues going up around the country. Mostly on private property and one is in that hard core southern state, Delaware.

    The talk page for that article is clear that the removed Confederate monuments do not qualify for the article because they haven't been destroyed, only relocated. It's a distinction without a difference but that's what they're hanging their political hat on.

    OTOH, the monument in Durham was clearly destroyed.

    I've been editing on Wikipedia for many years. I wonder if I should go help that article.

    ETA - In case anybody can't tell when I'm being sarcastic, I've already started the process of "helping" that article.

    Back when I was safari hunting in Africa, everything in RSA was being converted name wise to african names. The Northern Provence was remamed The Limpopo Provence, Warmbaths was renamed Bella Bella. It's all revisionist history! "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
