Keep the name

First of all, I am not nor ever been associated with Freeburg High School. With the ongoing debate about changing their mascot from “The Midgets” to something else, I looked in the dictionary as to word definitions.

“Midget” means an extremely small person. “Little” means small in size, short in stature. Not much difference between the two words. This is like saying that a person is obese and not fat.

I think that Freeburg should stand strong and keep the Midgets. This is just my opinion and I am entitled to it, no matter what anyone else may think.
