I certainly agree, but I doubt it'll happen.  We're still trying to
get rid of the football team name the Washington Redskins.  It's
just abominable!  It'd be like calling a team the Darkies.  And yet,
after many, many court cases (I believe there's one every single
year), the name remains.  I suppose if we had an English Academy
of some kind, these kinds of changes would be easier to make.
(Of course, if we did, English might still be described as an SOV
case language, so I suppose we should count our blessings...)
