Robert E. Lee logo removed from Virginia Boy Scout uniforms

The Washington Times has this report, which quotes the state's NAACP director as saying "It's a funny thing here in Virginia, because the Confederate side is still fighting the Civil War."

Some days I drive down the Lee Highway between Abingdon and Bristol, but maybe I should stick to calling it U.S. Route 11 for fear of being viewed as supporting slavery.
