It seems to me that people are so busy looking for something that offends them that they overlook the historic and cultural value of the use of names like these in the community. "Bombers" can be used to have more than one meaning and it certainly has meaning for the many people in Richland the contributed to ending WWII. Braves pay homage to the local tribes: to the activities of the native peoples and also is a symbol of steadfastness that is an asset to one's life. So, why discontinue their use as a teams name.
