Lexington to vote on plan for museumGood.
The council will decide on whether to proceed courting the Museum of the Confederacy.
By Jay Conley, The Roanoke Times
The fate of what has become a controversial proposal to lure the Museum of the Confederacy to Lexington from its cramped quarters in Richmond will be determined tonight by the Lexington City Council.
The Rockbridge County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously this week to submit the relocation proposal to the museum by Sunday's deadline. (link)
But then there's this rain cloud forming on the horizon:
"Certain people that have talked to the county and the city feel very strongly that this will be a very divisive issue."
Which means it ain't gonna happen. Not in this day and age.
This museum of Virginia history, because it is so "divisive" in this age of intolerance, will be lucky to survive where it is in downtown Richmond.
