  1. How long until some SJW decides to smash everything and burn it down because #RACIST!!!1!!!!!!!121!!1 or some other historical revisionist bullshit?

  2. Thomas Jefferson was truly a Renaissance man, an innovator, scholar, scientist, politician….A remarkable man and thinker….his relationship with Sally Hemmings was merely the first “Black Studies” program in history….and he led the way…say Thank You Oprah…

  3. …Mark Kutney, an architectural conservator in the University Architect’s office. “The original arch above the opening will have to be reconstructed, but
    we hope to present the remainder of the hearth as essentially unrestored, preserving its evidence of use.”

    Evidence of use? Uh-oh. The EPA will declare the UVa Rotunda a Superfund site by the end of the year.

  4. Sounds like they decided to seal it up because it wasn’t exactly a fountain of youth:

    “Emmet died in 1842, at age 47, with some of his failing health attributed to various accidents and mishaps suffered while he was conducting chemical experiments.”
