Huckleberries Online

Afternoon Question -- 2/22/06

Issue: Christian college to nix 'Crusaders' mascot? Some students believe name sends 'wrong message' to world/WorldNetDaily

Blogger Robert Duncan: "I would like to suggest that NNU consider adopting a plant as its mascot, and especially one that imbues pure humbleness: the pensive and sublime 'Viola tricolor hortensis.' I can think of nothing that would be more fitting than to hear at future sporting events that loud and clear cheer: 'Let's go, Pansies!'"

Question: P.C.? Or a correct response for a name that has outlived its usefulness?
