    I don't understand why the owners of the Washington NFL franchise insist on keeping that slur of a name. It doesn't even have any meaning in that city unless one goes way, way back in US history. They could call themselves the Thieves, maybe, or the Warmongers. Those would work and so would navajo's suggestion of Lobbyists.

    I am a big fan of NHL hockey and I live in Chicago so I am, of course, a Blackhawk's fan. Their logo is considered by many to be the best in all of professional sports and I do love it. The Blackhawks are funders and supporters of the American Indian Center here and there is a bronze rendering of the great Indian Head logo on display there.

    Why do I still have a little pinprick of unease about it, I wonder.
