Vanderbilt finally admits defeat, keeps "Confederate Memorial Hall"

A few months ago, Vanderbilt University lost a court battle with the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Today, they have finally accepted defeat. The dorm will remain "Confederate Memorial Hall." Of course, the PC-spin machine at Vanderbilt doesn't see this as a defeat, instead trumpeting that awareness of the issue is victory in itself.

That's funny. Picking a fight with the UDC over this naming issue didn't make anyone more aware that slavery was one issue about which the North and South differed during the War of Northern Aggression. The only thing that this made people aware of was that Vanderbilt is home to several politically-correct twits running the school and a bunch of students (that you can't help but feel sorry for) who are overpaying for a non-education.
