Column: Pull the plug on the chop — and Braves name, too

The haunting chants will be impossible to ignore now that the World Series has shifted to Atlanta. While a good chunk of the world moves forward, the Braves are choosing to cling stubbornly to the past, hoping that any opposition to their nickname and the tomahawk chop will somehow just fade away, or at least get drowned out by 40,000 fans waving their arms and droning in unison like extras in a 1950s John Wayne flick. Major League Baseball, which took the bold stance of yanking the All-Star Game out of Atlanta over the state’s new voting restrictions, suddenly looks about as progressive as Kenesaw Mountain Landis with its tortured defense of the team.
