The Signal - - OPINION -

My sim­ple ques­tion is why when we are tear­ing down mon­u­ments and re­mov­ing names from pub­lic build­ings of past icons of our his­tory do we have a lo­cal high school named af­ter Tibur­cio Vasquez, who was one of the most no­to­ri­ous out­laws/killers and ban­dits in our lo­cal his­tory... hanged in 1875? There has to be a much bet­ter hero in His­panic his­tory to name the school af­ter.. how about Ce­sar Chavez for in­stance ...? Oh well, just ask­ing.
