Stop Missouri Legislature from honoring Rush Limbaugh

Statues in the Missouri State Capitol Rotunda honor famous Missourians. Naturally, one would expect that these statues and busts honor famous Missourians who have made a positive contribution to their community. For example, Missourians Stan Musial, a beloved St. Louis Cardinals baseball Hall of Famer known for his skill, sportsmanship and moral fiber (when he quit pro ball to fight for his country in World War II); American hero Sacajawea; broadcaster with integrity, Walter Kronkite; and great American President Harry S. Truman are among the others who have been honored in this way. Missouri Speaker of the House, Steven Tilley's plan to have a bust of Rush Limbaugh is a slap in the face not only to those others honored, but to Missourians. Limbaugh is famous for his divisive, racist, misogynistic rhetoric and has not made a valuable contribution worthy of being honored with the likes of the heroes listed above. Going through with this goofy plan of erecting a bust of Limbaugh on State property would send the rest of the country the message that Missouri is a short-sighted population that recognizes individuals for celebrity and infamy over substance and quality.
