Letter: What a waste of energy fighting over nicknames

What a waste of energy fighting over nicknames

Have we beaten this school name controversy into the ground yet? First it was Lancaster, now people are attacking the Kenmore West Blue Devils. In case people run out of schools and teams to attack, here is a list of others they can start on: Arizona State Sun Devils, DePaul Blue Demons, Duke Blue Devils and SUNY Fredonia Blue Devils. While we’re at it, let’s not ignore the professional teams, like Cleveland Indians, Chicago Blackhawks and New Jersey Devils.

Really, people, these schools and teams have existed for years without any controversy, now it becomes offensive. How about putting your efforts and energy into more worthwhile projects like feeding the hungry and housing the homeless? Let’s give these schools and teams a break!
