Letter: What's in a name?

November 18, 2013 

For the sake of political correctness, I have some suggestions for names that could adopt replace the name "Washington Redskins."

How about the "Washington Democrats" or the "Washington Republicans?" To be a little bit on the fun side, we could call them the "Washington DumbOcrats" or the "Republican Rubber Neckers." On the more serious side, my all-time favorite, which will instill fear in any opposing team, is the "Washington Tea Party Warriors."

In all seriousness, I believe they should keep the name "Washington Redskins"
