Officials to remove Duncan III name

If you haven't seen it, then you should check out Jim Matheny's piece over at WBIR, right smack here, on the county's plan to remove John Duncan III's name from a bunch of doors and drop boxes.

The total cost isn't necessarily that much - it's probably less than $1,000 - but it points out the absurdity of a term-limited elected official slapping his (or her) name down wherever they please. I think that putting in on one main office door is enough. But whatever.

And as one college professor points out, "it's about name recognition" and getting "some free campaigning by putting your name on something."
