Dallas Considers Disturbing the Dead

The attempts to cleanse the public places isn’t merely aimed at the Confederacy, but all the past dead:

A 173-year-old cemetery filled with the graves of Dallas founders may stand in the way of redevelopment downtown.

Why it matters: Pioneer Park Cemetery sits on a hill above the massive Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center that city leaders want to raze to make way for a multi-billion-dollar development.

So much for the “just put the monuments in graveyards” folks. A Confederate monument had already been removed from the site, but that wasn’t enough. They can’t even leave the dead undisturbed.
