FLG Doth Protest!

Two recent stories have rather upset FLG.

First Story:

WSJ:
The Treasury Department announced Wednesday it will replace the main image of its own founder, Alexander Hamilton, on the $10 bill, with a woman as yet to be determined. Mr. Hamilton will remain on the bill in a diminished way.

Alexander Hamilton was a total badass who pretty much laid the foundation for American Greatness.  He also was the first Secretary of the Treasury, which FLG sorta thinks means he should stay on a bill.  Change pretty much any other bill first.

BTW, Harriet Tubman. Okay. Got it. FLG is all in favor of honoring her, but not on the $10 bill.   Eleanor Roosevelt?  What the fuck is the continuing fascination with Eleanor Roosevelt all about?


Second Story:
Don't teach Shakespeare?   Are you people fucking mad?  Then again, maybe nobody is paying attention anyway.
