And yet more Outrage!©™

The FoxHoles are going nuts, along with Ohio's congressional delegation and other elected 'leaders.'

This time, it's over the renaming of Mt Denali back to ... Mt Denali. Right now, it's also referred to as Mt McKinley.

McKinley was a president, and he was from Ohio. He was a middle-of-the-pack president - nothing to brag about, but nothing really to sneer at, either.

But here's the thing.

McKinley was an Ohioan. He was born there, raised there, and except for a very brief educational attempt in Pennsylvania, lived there most of his adult life.

He had nothing to do with Alaska.

Mt Denali is in Alaska. 'Denali' is an Alaskan native American name. Alaskans generally want the mountain renamed back to 'Denali.' In fact, they already have, insofar as the state is concerned.

The Ohioans should find a hill somewhere in Ohio, and name it "McKinley's Knob" or somesuch.

And then get on with the important issues of the day.

Outrage grows over Obama plans to rename Mt McKinley.
