Will Couric, Mathison or Brennan Come to Mr. Jefferson's Defense?

"I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."-Thomas Jefferson

The Texas Board of Education voted to remove Thomas Jefferson from the curriculum regarding the Age of Enlightenment. They implied Mr. Jefferson added nothing new. The forger of the Declaration of Independence simply copied from French and other European philosophers. Jefferson established the University of Virginia, frequently referred to as a public Ivy League institution.

Since Texans love fightin' words, what does this mean? Are Texans are declaring war on Virginia? Is it because of its proximity to hated (yet secretly loved) Washington, D.C?

Will UVA graduates Katie Couric (CBS News), Tyler Mathison (CNBC) or Margaret Brennan (Bloomberg) come to Mr. Jefferson's defense?

Thomas has been quoted many times on Ari's Freedom Switch. I promise not to remove him from the compilation.
