‘Second Pandemic’ Spreads To VMI

Nov. 16, 2020

Editor, The News-Gazette:

My recent predictions about the pandemics threatening our Quaint Little Village have proven to be accurate.

COVID-19 cases are approaching the 300 mark. The second pandemic, P.C., “Political Correctness,” has spread to VMI., “Virginia Mental Institute.” The first victim was General Binford Peay, who certainly didn’t deserve it. The second victim appears to be “Stonewall” Jackson, who has been dead for 157 years. It’s so easy for these cowards to vilify a dead man.

Our “beloved governor” in his “infinite wisdom” has decided to spend one million of our “taxpayer’s dollars” to investigate Virginia Military Institute. I hope they spend a little of the money to determine how he got his nickname, “Coon Man.” Did he really wear a “Black Face”?

We will eventually find a cure for COVID-19. It’s a shame that we can’t find a cure for “Political Correctness” too.

To be continued.

    ALL 12 CHILDREN of Cornelia and William Washington likely gathered at the time of William’s 1903 funeral for this photograph in Michael Miley’s Lexington studio. Cornelia is seated in front (second from right); William may well be the subject of the portrait spotlighted on the back wall. William Lee Washington Jr. stands just below the portrait, in a white tie (back row, fifth from left). (courtesy of W&L Special Collections.)
