Geezer and Chief Wahoo
The Cleveland Indians are finally dropping Chief Wahoo (Sports, Tuesday). So goodbye to Chief Wahoo. The Redskins in Washington are next. PETA will be in Miami for the Dolphins (squish the fish), Saints are religious, Cowboys are gender specific, and Chiefs and Kings are elitist. Can't say "Giant's crushed the Cardinals" or "Rangers bats killed the Bluejays" — kids will have nightmares.
Or maybe we could stop being offended by every little thing. My Grandson calls me geezer and my daughter called me "Old Man" and you'll probably read this and call me "Idiot." Bring it, I don't care.

I agree with Ken
Regarding "Unfit then and now" (letters, Tuesday):
I didn't vote for either person running for president as neither was any good, especially that Donald Trump. He's worthless! I agree with Mr. Ken!

Above the law?
Boy, did Ed Rogers ever miss the mark by blaming Rep. Devin Nunes for recommending the disclosure of the memo (Opinion, Wednesday). The memo was only a byproduct of the Russia investigation. The Intelligence Committee of Congress is still charged with overseeing the FBI and DOJ.
In this present case, there appear to be clear violations of FISA law and the Hatch Act, and everyone involved needs to be identified and/or prosecuted.
But then I suppose Ed would like us to let the IRS and Hillary Clinton investigations, where the criminals went unnamed and unpunished, go un-prosecuted as well. No, sir. I believe we want them all opened, investigated, and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. No one is above the law, right Ed?

Many years ago, when I was in elementary school, there were children in my classes who were known for their childish behavior. These spoiled brats responded to not getting their way by holding their breath, clenching their teeth and acting disgusted with anyone who did not take their side.
From what I saw Tuesday night at the State of the Union Address by President Trump (news stories, Wednesday), those children are now Democratic members of Congress.
