Keep Obamaville Weird

RECEIVED Tue., July 31, 2018

Dear Editor,
    Once again the PC über-twits are pushing for more name changes to assuage their sensitive feelings. First they went after school names and the statues. Now it's street names and, if you can believe it, the name of the city itself.
    For the sake of all their sensitive feelings we should just go ahead and rename Austin. We can rename it Obamaville. That should satisfy them.
    And while we are at it let's rename all the schools after Obama too. We can have Obama PS 1, Obama PS 2, Obama PS 3, and so on. The same for the high schools.
    The name change zealots can then rejoice, until they search for some other reason to be offended.
