hat tip usclarry.
Ace WWII pilot and Medal of Honor winner Gregory "Pappy" Boyington is an unwelcome memory at the University of Washington, his alma mater. The famed Flying Tigers pilot was credited with having shot down 28 Japanese fighters and was the subject of the 1970's series Baa Baa Black Sheep which documented the unit he commanded. In a debate over erecting a memorial to Mr. Boyington, Ashley Miller bring up the very salient point that there are enough memorial at UW honoring "rich, white men". From Neal Boortz.
