Tell KY Commission What They Can Do With a Traitor's Statue

My suggestion:  Move it outside, someplace where people can easily get to it to spray-paint graffiti on it.  Seriously.

A state panel decided Thursday to collect public comments through July 29 on whether a statue of Jefferson Davis should remain in the Capitol Rotunda or be moved to a museum.

The manager of the Jefferson Davis Historic Site in Todd County, who is black, said Thursday that it "would be fine with me" to move the marble likeness of Davis, the president of the Confederate states during the Civil War, to Davis' birthplace.


A special section of the commission's website,, will be set up within a few days to collect public comment, Collins said. Meanwhile, comments can be submitted now to state curator David Buchta at
