Freddy Jackson let go by the Bills yesterday. Can't think of a better way to celebrate their time in Buffalo by revisiting Danielle Jackson's appearances on the Better Half of the Bills. Her story of them driving to The Ralph for the first pre-season game and wondering if anyone would ever wear her husbands jersey is priceless, especially considering how he became the face of the franchise and many Buffalo businesses. Buffalo will miss the Jackson's (especially if Freddy hooks up with another team and destroys us in one game)!
Just before leaving for a trip to Alaska, President Obama righted what many Native Americans see as a century old wrong.
The name of America's highest peak, Mount McKinley in Alaska, has been changed back to its original name, Denali.
In the native tongue, the word means "the high one."
The story of how it became known as Mount McKinley - named after President William McKinley, who was only a candidate for the presidency at the time - is pretty funny.
A gold prospector came ouf of the Alaskan wilderness, telling stories about the sights he'd seen, including this very high mountain. He decided that it should be named for McKinley, a Republican from Ohio who had never been and never would end up going to Alaska.
Makes perfect sense, right?
And that's it?
Native American groups in Alaska have been fighting for the name change since Alaska became a state in 1959.
