    Howard related because he should change his name to Mt. Baldy.

    Obama Flexes, Renames Mount McKinley
    [​IMG]

    President Barack Obama announced on Sunday that he is changing the name of Mount McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America, to Denali. (Can he do that? So he can.)

    Alaskans have referred to the 20,320-foot summit as “Denali” for years, the Associated Press reports. It is an Athabascan word that means “the high one.”

    According to the New York Times, the mountain was named for former President William McKinley, for whom it was christened (by a gold prospector) in 1896, while he was campaigning for president. McKinley was assassinated six months into his second term, in 1901; he never visited Alaska.

    Obama, who cited the Interior Department’s authority to change the name, will become the first sitting American president to visit the Alaskan Arctic during his trip there this week.

    scots/irish are the whitest of the whites. only seems logical to erase the name from history.

    I still call the concert stadium by Giants Stadium (no longer called that) as Brendan Byrne Arena.

    This is a good move
    I've been there and frankly like most of America we stole it from native people
    Let them have it their way they were here first

    Just my take, plus everyone calls it Denali

    I honestly don't care either way,

    Hmm, interesting point. Although, if we can agree that the Athabaskan tribes stole the area from the Dena'ina tribes, shouldn't we use whatever name they preferred. Then again, with a bit of research, I'm sure we can figure out which tribe pre-dated the Dena'ina tribes in that area. I guess we should probably use that name instead. :scratch:

    I guess it all comes down to how badly you feel the need to apologize for being successful. :dontknow:
