    Yes! I really hope this works, Get the memorials of traitors out of downtown. Norfolk is a different city these days and it’s citizens have a right to move these monuments.

    Why can’t they just send these statues to cities and town that want them? I’m sure the good ole boys in Giles county (or wherever) would love to have their boulevards lined with them.

    Virginia is a “Dillon rule” state (wiki or goggle if you want to know more about this), which makes it virtually impossible for local governments to act against the wishes of the lawmakers in Richmond. Federal law recognizes this and so this suit is more likely a publicity exercise. My humble suggestion is to focus on elections to the state legislature, as that is where the real power is. And guess what? Literally every seat in both chambers of the state legislature is up this November. So here is your to do list: 1) register to vote, 2) get educated on the people running for office, and 3) VOTE! 😁
