TKC MONDAY QUESTION: IS IT TIME TO RENAME LEE'S SUMMIT JUST IN CASE?!?!
There's a politically correct rumor that pretends Lee's Summit is named after Pleasant Lea in an old school snail mail mistake . . . But the reality is that the town is ACTUALLY named Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
Let's not debate the cultural history of what could be one of the worst strip-mall enclaves in Missouri.
Instead . . .
Given that Confederate monuments are coming down across the nation . . .
IS IT TIME TO RENAME LEE'S SUMMIT AND FORSAKE CONFEDERACY TRIBUTE OF THIS NASTY LOCAL TOWN?!?!
Changing the name back to Big Ceder would actually be kinda cool and much more inviting than this secretive tribute . . . The only thing locals have to lose is a few mentions in the Beverly Hillbillies and a whole lot of underlying racism amid shifting demographics and more crime.
You decide . . .
