On April 15, 2014 Kerry Shawell sent me the following note: "Lamar Texans - No more Indians." I didn't know whether this was just Kerry's suggestion. Then Sally Mills Watkins shared with your lazy correspondent (me, and of course you, too via this update) a link to the Houston Chronicle report. As indicated in the article, the Houston Independent School District announced Tuesday, the 15th of April, that the Lamar High School mascot will henceforth be the Texans. (Two other Houston high schools and one middle school had their "culturally insensitive" mascot names changed, too.) Dare we hope that this settles the issue?
