    Re: A Complaint Filed Against a NDP



    You are from Hawaii when you think of Duke Kahanamoku.

    Re: A Complaint Filed Against a NDP

    Most of my friends are more into classic film than college sports, so John Wayne would probably be the primary reference.

    (In my own mind, too many things are named Duke for one to have enough distinction to own it as a trademark. "Duke University" is the name in my mind for the school, not the "Duke" word standing alone. Duke, duke, duke, duke of earl, earl, earl...)

    I'm 37 and have never seen a John Wayne film. To me, "Duke" refers to the university; "The Duke" refers to John Wayne.

    Re: A Complaint Filed Against a NDP

    If I caught the word "duke" in a random conversation, I would assume those involved were talking college basketball.
    On the other hand, I've seen several interviews with friends of John Wayne, where in the course of the story, they referred to him (and addressed him) as "Duke", not "The Duke".
    If the University has a problem with any of this, maybe they should have sued Mr. Wayne and his friends to try and stop them from calling him "Duke" years ago.
    I don't think anyone is going to see this label on a store shelf and assume it's affiliated with Duke University.

    Is the Rose Bowl committee going to go after Four Roses next, or maybe the University of Texas will try to get F&R to change the name of their TX Whiskey...

    As an experiment, I encourage everyone to try the following with a couple people. Say, "What's the first thing that comes into your mind when I say 'Duke'?"


    Pittsburgh natives of a certain age will remember this product of the Duquense Brewing Company Recently reintroduced into the Western PA market.
