    might as well change the name to Ashley Madison high school, now that data has been dumped to fairfaxunderground in plain text the kids are teasing each other on social media if parents are on the list. what a way to start the school year.

    • Henry Rearden

      Just think of all the “your mom” jokes that are being spun right now.

      • Sheik Yerbouti

        If a teacher’s name is on that list they are going to have tougher year…

  • Chuck Morningwood

    Julianne Moore is a great actress, but JEB Stuart was a great warrior. Arlington should keep the name of the school.

    Because, as is well-known, the only history and heritage worth preserving isthe sanitized version.

    So, what’s next, do we flatten the the Robert E Lee mansion at Arlington National Cemetery because, well, it was formerly owned by a Confederate General? Or do we flatten the White House because it was built with slave labor? And these are federal properties…

    Where does it end?

    • General Grant

      Don’t know where it ends, but lets start with changing the names of these schools honoring traitors and bigots.

      • Chuck Morningwood

        So, you would advocate for the renaming everything with “Malcolm X” in it?
