June 17

John Kelly’s June 10 Metro column, “Historian: Truman wary of tributes,” and others have pointed out that Harry S. Truman would not want Union Station to be renamed after him. Perhaps we should consider honoring A. Philip Randolph, organizer and president of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. Through that and his other civil-rights activism, he did much to improve rail travel for workers and riders.
