School asks, 'Who is James A. Madison?'

This is just idiotic:
Utah’s James A. Madison Elementary School may have a nice ring to it, but there is a problem since the nation’s fourth president didn’t have a middle initial.

No one is really sure how the “A” became included in the name, which was among those submitted by teachers, students and parents from the Ogden School District.
I work at a school. This is so ridiculously typical.
The school board will also vote next Wednesday to ratify the James Madison name change.
That's a relief. We wouldn't want anyone thinking a place where
"rarely is the question asked, is our children learning?" would make such an embarrassing mistake on their marquee where everyone could see it. I mean, this is a pretty big deal.
"It's not that critical of an issue. We'll just take the A out and call it James Madison," said board President Don Belnap, who told the newspaper he didn’t notice the problem with the initial even though he was a history major in college.
This doofus must be a No Child Left Behind alumnus. Whaddya say we bring back real education, okay guys?

Welcome to our newest school, Morons R' Us Elementary, to be followed by Dumb Ass Middle School, and the George W. Bush High.

We can't name a university, because nobody would make it in.

And since they wouldn't be able to write, they couldn't fill out the application for admissions anyway.

This brings up another point. What's with these ancient names for schools? Why not name them after people kids can relate to... Andy A. Samberg Elementary... Tony A. Hawk High... Britney A. Spears Vocational School...

That actually cracked me up -- maybe it's because it's 6 AM and I'm still up, but that was a solid minute of loud laughing and hopefully not waking up my housemate.

Not to mention that K is a better middle initial by far. All famous people had a K as a middle initial. Harry K. Truman, Doris K. Day, Red K. China, Johnnie K. Ray, South K. Pacific, Walter K. Winchell, Joe K. DiMaggio, and so on. I believe Truman's middle initial K stood for S.
