Great timing wouldn't you say?
Dude, it's words. I'd like to think our country is more than just a bunch of words some judge scribbled down in 1908. People get very precious and defensive about trivial things, partly because it's difficult for them to break free from what they consider a vital part of our past and because any change with regards to wording (for the inclusive better, I might add) makes them feel that there's some sort of agenda against them. I think that is ridiculous.
