Redskins and Other Politically Incorrect Names

There has been a bunch of yapping going on lately about the Washington Redskins being offensive.  I say, so what?  If someone is offended, that’s okay.  There are others who are flattered by the name and some of them would no doubt be offended if it were changed.

Too much attention is given to not hurting the feelings of a few sensitive individuals.  The old saying is that you can’t please all of the people all of the time.  These names were not given out of spite.  In fact they honor a heritage and symbolize bravery and athleticism.  Frankly for a few individuals to demand that the rest of the world cater to their indignance is, well, offensive!

Help A Fellow Blogger

At the risk of seeming to be spam, a fellow blogger is campaigning to generate likes for her new facebook page.  I normally don’t promote things like this, but there is something in it for you!

If she gets 150 likes by 5:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, Sept. 20 she will give away a $50.00 gift certificate to one lucky “liker”!  The gift certificate is to WonderBooks, a used book store in Maryland.  If you don’t live anywhere near Maryland, all is not lost…they have a web site!

This store is awesome!  They have thousands (no exaggeration) of books and even sell books by the foot!  Go to their site and check it out.  In the mean time, if you have a fb account please look up Kitty Lusby and like her page…before 5:00!

Thanks for caring!  If we can return the favor we will!
