Objecting to the proposed renaming of the Washington Redskins as the Warriors for being too warlike, Leon Schwartz [“ ‘Warriors’ is no improvment,” letters, Jan. 27] suggested renaming the team the Peacemakers. Which Peacemaker did he have in mind? The cannon that exploded aboard the USS Princeton on the Potomac River in 1844? Or the popular Colt revolver? Or maybe even the Convair B-36 bomber?
With all the gun-control debates going on, I don’t think Peacemaker is a good choice. Let’s just call the team the Washington Pandas and be done with it.
