The Sanford High School Marching Band will perform in Barack Obama's inaugural parade. Of course, it seems the transition team didn't read Rick Wormwood's story a couple weeks back, "Last of the Redskins," in which we detailed the likelihood that Sanford High School will be the last team in Maine to use the "Redskins" nickname, which many Native Americans consider offensive.
How do we know this? Just read the introductory part of the press release announcing the band's involvement (emphasis added):
In keeping with its commitment to hold inaugural events that celebrate our
common values and reflect the diversity and history of our great nation,
President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden's Inaugural
Committee officially extended an offer to the Sanford High School Marching
Band to march in the 56th Inaugural Parade
