Column: Should school be named for late chief?

"Is it appropriate to name a school for a man who was an international fugitive from justice?

How about a man found guilty of hiring a hit man to snuff out a rival? A man convicted of molesting a 10-year-old girl? Surprisingly, the people who run Federal Way schools are considering naming their new middle school after the man whose life included all these story lines.

That's because Bob Satiacum was also a genuine American hero."
