Let the history revising go on -- on the heels of tear-downs and petitions for tear-downs of Civil War-era monuments and statues, now comes this: A student at James Madison Memorial High School in Madison, Wisconsin, wants the school's name changed, because it offends.

America's colleges: Where the stupid become stupider

Are America's colleges becoming little more than breeding grounds for the next generation of stupid?
