Town says NO to naming building Hairy Balls (even though it's spelled differently)

In Fort Wayne, Ind., in the 1930s and 50s, Mayor Harry Baals was very popular. But city leaders won't name a building after him. The issue is pronunciation. The former mayor pronounced his last name "balls." His descendants have since changed it to "bales." (NPR)

What's YOUR opinion?  Personally, I see no problem naming the building after the former Mayor.  The people in Ft. Wayne seem a little uptight!  Just sayin!

Remembering President Ronald Reagan

On this momentous day, which would have been your 100th birthday--we have not forgotten you.

Somewhere I have a great photo that I took in NYC in 1987 of a building that was plastered with this poster.  The poster was EVERYWHERE.  I hope I can find the photo and post it for President's Day, since I missed it for this occasion.
