The mountain which Congress decided to name "Mt. McKinley" already had a name. The local Native tribes have called it Denali for thousands of years. It means "the high one".
The President from Ohio after whom Congress renamed it was never here, and never did anything of significance for Alaska.
Alaskans have (for the most part) stubbornly refused to call it anything but Denali all along, and have been petitioning for the original name to be restored. For decades. And we've never understood why Ohioans thought that their local-politician-made-good needed a monument thousands of miles away.
No one disputes that President McKinley was worthy of remembrance, but let them make his monument in his home state, rather than a place most of them will never visit.
The timing of the official acknowledgement of its original name may be suspect, but that's another story.
And with that, I'm done. All y'all can go back to your normal, everyday lives.
