The people who most vehemently opposed that idea at the time said that it wasn't the name change that bothered them but the fact that Gov. Janet Napolitano decided to steamroll the normal five-year waiting period for such an honor.
Well, five years have passed.
You still can be angry at Napolitano for speeding up the process and at people like me for encouraging her, but you can no longer duck the question.
Would you call Piestewa a squaw? Would you call any Native American woman a squaw?
Because if you wouldn't, and if you wouldn't expect people in my business to do so, or for politicians to do so when honoring soldiers like Piestewa, then you recognize the word for what it always has been: An insult.
