The University of Washington declines to honour former student and WWII flying ace Col. Gregory “Pappy” Boyington. Among those who opposed:
Jill Edwards questioned whether it was appropriate to honor a person who killed other people.
Over in Canada, plans proceed to honour draft dodgers with a creepy hippie statue:
The proposal calls for a sculpture of two Americans, a male and a female, crossing an imaginary border where a Canadian figure is waiting to welcome them.
As Clear and Present Danger reports: “They’re so liberal they even felt they had to create a female draft dodger.”

UPDATE. Commenter Blue Hen recalls a college moment:
The head genius in the class, a fellow graduate student, decided that intelligence was not only not a primary quality, but a detriment for a job like “being a Sergeant in the infantry”. The class agreed heartily, including the professor. At that, I decided to rise, walked up to his desk, and placed my military ID on his desk, which stated my rank (sergeant) and I noted that I had been in the infantry, but was currently a Combat Engineer. I then asked him if he would like to repeat his assertion. Strangely, he declined. The rest of the class was also oddly quiet.
