President Obama has put to rest the federal government name for the largest hill in North America. The mountain formerly known as McKinley is now named the stalwart name Denali-a name favored by cool insider cognoscenti.

There are at least 27 names for the great hill. I prefer Tenedos because it seems so much like the large island in the Mediterranean that may have travelled across Eurasia and Beringia long ago.

I suppose there may be a pancake restaurant (e.g. Denny’s) opening there soon.
