Chief Wahoo Wa Who?

Can't help but be amazed yet again as I watch the Sox play the Indians that Cleveland still uses this caricature as their mascot. As Jonathan Zimmerman editorializes in the Christian Science Monitor:
...When you watch the Cleveland Indians on television this week, watch your kids as well. Ask yourself what the image of Chief Wahoo teaches them about Native Americans. And ask yourself if you can live with the answer...

Funny. I just said something similar to Mheir last night. Like "do they really still use that image? Seriously?"

Hope the chat went well.
