Beaumont Independent School District - WTF?

Last night, our school board voted to name the new school district athletic complex after our highly controversial school district superintendent.  To say the man is controversial is a vast understatement, but I don't have time to go into that right now.

For those of you who live out of the area, some of this won't make sense to you, but bear with me. 

To the citizens of Jefferson County, Texas:

How about we rename Ford Park to Carl Griffith Park? The airport...Janis Joplin Regional? Washington Monument...Sarah Palin Monument? Why name something after one of the most controversial figures in the community? Folks, I think our school board has gone rogue.
