Friday's Klips: Hail and farewell to the Chief

My DRA* column, Hail and farewell to the Chief, has been posted at the usual place. As some may guess, I'm not at all pleased with the U of I decision to send Chief Illiniwek to the happy hunting ground:
As of the time I write this, Chief Illiniwek has one last dance to strut, Wednesday evening. After that, he is to be retired, and the University of Illinois will be looking for a new mascot. The dispute leading up to the Chief’s removal from view is one of the silliest I have seen.

Please read the rest of it.

*whose editors very kindly print my my column each Friday, at no cost to me.
