Mt. McKinley is no more. The highest peak in North America has been wiped out with the stroke of a pen.
The mountain still stands; now it’s called Denali.
- McKinley never set foot on the mountain that bore his name.
- He had not set foot in Alaska.
- At the time McKinley was President, Alaska was not a state.
Everyone in Alaska is cool with this. Alaskans have been lobbying for the mountain to be officially acknowledged as Denali for many years. So the people of Alaska greeted this as a good thing. Hell, even Alaskan Republicans had to suck it up and give props to Obama for doing what needed to be done for a long time.
Just kidding. Stay classy, Ohio!
I'll be back with another post tomorrow. Until then, be good to one another.
