WASHINGTON -- You know we’ve reached a point of -- something -- when a sports announcer named Robert Lee is reassigned from calling a University of Virginia college football game because of his contemporaneously unfortunate name. Lee reportedly agreed with ESPN that he should go elsewhere rather than risk heckling, distraction or potentially worse given the recent horror in Charlottesville, where white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other vermin violently protested the taking down of a Robert E. Lee statue. The ensuing mayhem left one counter-protester dead and many others injured.
