Renaming Jordan Middle School was a good idea. Not only was Jordan a eugenicist, he also once helped to cover up a murder of a colleague. Yeah, he was a peach.

Dolores Huerta, on the other hand, is awesome. She turned 91 in April and she’s still at it! Here’s a link to the Dolores Huerta Foundation for Community Organizing.

I did have one tiny issue with the school being named after her. There are three middle schools in Burbank, and they we’re all originally named after naturalists; the other two are John Muir and Luther Burbank. It would have been cool if they could have found another naturalist for the new name. But as I said this is a tiny issue, roughly on the level of “you gave me this awesome mansion but this one closet still has some stuff hanging in it.”

Tomorrow: a big ride. WHEEEEE!
