This is in reply to Charles Krauthammers Oct. 18 column on Redskins (excuse me, Skins) et al.
I had to read it twice, because, for the most part, I found myself agreeing with him for the first time in my memory. I like his point that simple decency should be what determines the language we use. I plead guilty of at one time having a vast store of humor based on racial slurs, sexist stereotypes and religious bigotry. I think I have pretty much cleaned up my act, though I may have a little trouble with gyp. And I did feel that Mr. K might want to consider changing the first part of his name, lest he offend those of Germanic background. And I may agree with him on something in the future, though I doubt it.
