I read the article, "Indian mascot still at school," by Gary Moskowitz in the July 11 edition. I thought that I should respond. My personal feeling is that the Indian should be retained, purely for the sake of tradition. I understand that when John Burroughs became a high school, the student body selected its own mascot, the Indian. Since the school is being renovated, why not involve the student body in the process of retaining the Indian mascot or selecting a new one?

Regarding Bill AB 2115, banning all Indian and ethnic mascots brought before the California Assembly: If this passes, no more John Burroughs Indian starting in 2003. We have let small groups of protesters get their way and change things that should be left alone, as the majority wants. For instance, a small group of Indian activists wants to ban all Indian-type mascots and ethnic mascots for schools. Many Indians and ethnic groups think it is real stupid, but are afraid to stand up. The activists bring up some good points and get some on their side, but by a very overwhelming majority, the people in the USA are happy with the way the mascots are now, with maybe a little changing.
