Almost everyone would probably agree that changes are happening every day. I’m not talking about the weather either.

I probably should have talked to (outdoors columnist) Bob Kornegay before making this comment. I’ve been thinking here lately that “political correctness” is a whole lot tougher than woodpecker lips.

Thanks a lot to Harry Reid, the Washington Redskins may lose the Indian part of their name. What’s next? The Atlanta Braves? The Cleveland Indians? Atheists might go after the New Orleans Saints. People that work with cows might go after the Dallas Cowboys.

What’s going to happen to Red Man tobacco or Indian Motorcycles?

Are animal and bird names going to be next?
