USPTO’s slurring of the 2nd Infantry Division must not stand
In 1972 the Washington Redskins registered their modern graphical logo, USPTO Registration Number 986668. In their Blackhorse v. Pro Football, Inc. decision, USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board decided it was disparaging at the time it was filed.

McCain Missed The Moment
Put aside for a moment McCain’s weaker moments including the unconnected mention of ethanol subsidies, an inability to respond to Obama’s claim that he will tax health care and an anemic explanation of his strategy for energy independence and focus on the emergency economic bailout.
