The Dung Beetle Award goes to...

The Academy of Dung Beetles' Award is being rolled toward a group of seven Washington and Lee University (W&L) students who are are demanding the elite school  "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee's "dishonorable side."
According to The Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves 'The Committee,'" have also demanded  that the school, in Lexington, Virginia, "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1.
