Don’t support the change of the name of the Russell Building to the John McCain Building. Richard Russell’s politics were in line with the way the general population thought at the time.

Do not toss Russell under the bus, because if you do, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin will be next.
