I is for … huh?

There’s political correctness and then there’s silliness. Anya’s preschool newsletter said they would be introducing the letters “H” for harvest and “I” for Native Americans in the first half of November. Wait, “I” for Native Americans? Took me a second to realize that they mean Indians. To some extent, I get removing controversial terms – especially at a young age where you just don’t want to get into the discussion around why some people find whatever-it-is to be offensive. But why wouldn’t they pick another word for the letter?! Ice, Ink, Inside, Incredible, Imagine, Infinite, Island … thousands of words that start with ‘i’.
