Many thanks to Mike Wise for his thoughtful piece on the name of the Washington Redskins franchise [“Why won’t RGIII talk about his team’s name?” Outlook, Jan. 13], written from a perspective not of political correctness but of human decency.

I have long thought that the name should be changed to simply the Skins, since that’s what we call them half the time anyway. That would preserve the team’s positive legacy while being inclusive of all humanity.
