A potato for a mascot?

It seems that everyone suddenly has an opinion regarding the Washington Redskins' supposedly offensive name ("The curse of Redskins," June 16).

As our nation gets duped with more on the PC bandwagon, I have a suggestion for Redskins team owner Daniel Wilson: Consider changing the team's name to the "Washington Redskin Potatoes."

At least it may keep those of us with inherent common sense some armament to fend off the fools who are already under the Kool-Aid-intoxicating influence of political correctness. Yes, political correctness is very un-American.

Is it any wonder we are raising children who have such warped behavioral compasses?

    Wednesday's articles about the traffic snarl created by protesters and the city's $20 million loss from the riots were both big news, but no one seems to have tied them together, especially the Rev.
