THE U.S. PATENT OFFICE HAS JOINED THE GROWING LIST OF PEOPLE IN THIS

COUNTRY WHO HAVE GONE NUTS!  THE OFFICE RULED WEDNESDAY THAT THE

WASHINGTON REDSKINS NICKNAME IS "DISPARAGING" OF NATIVE AMERICANS

AND THAT THE TEAM'S FEDERAL TRADEMARKS FOR THE NAME MUST BE

CANCELED.  THE NAME IS USED AS A COMPLIMENT TO THE TENACITY OF THE

REDSKINS.  ANYONE WHO IS OFFENDED BY THE NAME IS LOOKING FOR A

REASON TO BE OFFENDED.  I JUST HAD TO GET THAT OFF MY CHEST.
