Perhaps calling it "KKK High School" isn't the best idea....

Up in Duval County they're considering renaming a school currently named for Nathan Bedford Forrest. He was one of the better Civil War generals (for the losing side), and an early "luminary" of the Ku Klux Klan. The Orlando Sentinel thinks it would be a good idea to change the name to something a little less toxic.

I would also note that naming one's on-line fantasy baseball team after N. B. Forrest is also a bad idea. Especially if you play at work.

A-HEM.

...

Actually, that last part isn't really true. You CAN play fantasy baseball at work, and you CAN name your team after an infamous Klansman. What you can't do is read CNN or blogs at work - THOSE offenses will get you fired. I know all of this because I got fired for the latter by a man who did the former. Don't tell me there's no justice in the world, 'cause I already know.
