Letter: Political correctness has gone awry

To the editor,

As expected, another example of political correctness gone awry. Athletic teams are being asked to eliminate the use of names associated with American Indian groups.

What is wrong with that? The names are always taken in terms of “winners” or “superiors,” never in terms of losers, and are always considered as complimentary. I’d rather be called a Waterbury Warrior than a Waterbury Wimp any day.
