Johnny Cash statue to replace Confederate figure on Capitol Hill

Statues of music legend Johnny Cash and civil rights icon Daisy Lee Gatson Bates will replace two Confederate figures on Capitol Hill.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) this month signed a law calling for the statues of Arkansas attorney Urah Milton Rose and former Gov. James P. Clarke to be replaced in Statuary Hall at the U.S. Capitol.

Hutchinson said in a weekly address that the change was being made “to update the statues with representatives of our more recent history.”

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, who first reported the swap last week, noted that Rose and Clarke are controversial figures.

The current culture deviated radically from previous human experience, ruthlessly reducing each woman and man to mere political units to be manipulated, balkanizing them into communities according to their likes and dislikes, so everything from cars to candy bars could be more effectively marketed, robbing them of their privacy, denying them both a real community of diverse views and the possibility of personal evolution by censoring the world they saw through the Internet to make it conform to the preferred beliefs of their self-appointed betters. - Dean Koontz

Replacing the founder of the Rose Law Firm with Johnny Cash?

I actually like the sound of that.
The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend. It may just be that I have two enemies.
