So I just read an article online from the handy Victoria Advocate website.

There is a petition circling around to give the new high schools the old high school names.

Wha? I don't think consolidation is a good thing, never did, and I was truly suprised when a whole town of people let elected school board members do just that. (But hey, don't blame me, I was raised on MTV and apathy, my generation barely even reads a book, much less registers to vote.)

Before we let everyone off the hook and "go back to the way things were"

Someone answer me one thing no one ever did...

What the heck does memorial high school memorialize? Up to this point, I have to just think we named it after the football field, and let's face it, it's not like there's major tourism outside of football season. Surely we could have done better.
