Re: Rosa Parks Boulevard

Technically John Hanson was the first slave owning president. Yet he came to power because the winning general eschewed the office of dictator, and Hanson is so forgettable because some other guys figured out how to make Continental democracy work. Maybe work on un-naming the John Hanson Highway first.

Me? I have a special place in my heart for victorious generals who eschew the office of dictator or Duke, and presidents who say no to being king and /or champion term limits. I'd name a street after a guy like that any day.
