Had this to say:
The Boston Globe has a column by Ellen Goodman about a community
blackboard, a monument put up not for a dead president or war hero but to
free expression. Read more about the project
Boston Globe URL is:
And the URl for it is http://www.tjcenter.org/monument/cover.html
There appears to be a virtual reality digital version in the making.
From Ellen Goodman's story:
"Not long from now, this corner will be a designated place to exercise that
rough muscle of democracy. Opinions and arguments will be erased and
renewed and rebutted. The people of Charlottesville will get to see what
people think. The handwriting on the wall.
And the rest of us will have a monument to a country in which free
expression requires nothing more - or less - than the willingness to step
up to the blackboard."
