In 2009, the Pittsburgh School District renamed one of its schools after President Obama, a sitting president who had been in office just a few months.
ASIDE: Apparently a Pittsburgh school can be named after a living person if no geographical location or historical person is available. The world has exhausted its supply of historical persons!
But that’s not even the bad part:
First, the students decided to pick a name. After debating between the Olympians, the Boas (Barack Obama Academy), the Eagles and the Spartans, the students voted that they would be the Barack Obama Eagles. . .
The colors were a lot easier; purple, black and silver, since purple represents royalty.
(Emphasis mine.) Wow. Just. . . Wow.
Maybe the article is just wrong. I sure hope so.
