The Post on a Silver Spring parent offended by the Washington NFL team's use of a racial slur as its nickname. Takoma Park City Council has reasonably moved away from the days of high-minded but fairly meaningless and sometimes divisive resolutions, but it would be reasonable for them to follow the lead of DC and Arlington and issue a resolution against the use of the term. To make it really effective however, they should also toss in some "whereas" clauses about the team's meddlesome owner, incompetent free agent acquisitions, and general organizational dysfunction. They could have a whole section just about the hiring of Jim Zorn.
