Washington, it was. And is.
AND EVER SHALL BE?
We are a questioning people; questions will be asked. To wit: Is the name simply settled history, a historical bridge too far to even discuss? Is it a tad troublesome, but not enough to skip lunch over? Or is it a betrayal, wholly unjustified, a historical wrong deserving of righting?

Washington is named for a president who owned slaves. Should it be?
[I have questions:
- Aren’t there far more important issues for the legislature and the people of the state of Washington to address?
- Aren’t those demanding we address the subjection of people 200+ years ago the same people demanding we give up our arms today?
I don’t believe these people have benign intent. I believe they intend to agitate and divide the people of the state and the country to make us weak.—Joe]
