NEW YORK (AP) - It was only a matter of time. A New York school has been renamed in honor of President-elect Barack Obama.
The former Ludlum Elementary School, in Long Island's Hempstead Union Free School District, was renamed at a school board meeting Thursday—effective immediately.
School officials say most of the 440 students there are black or Hispanic, and Obama's victory is a source of great pride.
I'm all for giving the man a fair chance to prove himself, like it or not he won the election fair and square. But before we start immortalizing his memory shouldn't we see something worth it first?
He won the election, now he has to prove he's not just Jimmy Carter minus the family out of a "Hee-Haw" script.
