    No Indiana Center Named For Harry Baals

    A former Indiana mayor who won four terms in the 1930s and 1950s is proving less popular with modern-day city leaders, who say they probably won't name a new government center for him because of the jokes his moniker could inspire.

    Harry Baals is the runaway favorite in online voting to name the new building in Fort Wayne, about 120 miles northeast of Indianapolis. But Deputy Mayor Beth Malloy said that probably won't be enough to put the name of the city's longest-tenured mayor on the center.

    Re: "What's in a name?" .... William Shakespeare

    Definitely a strange situation to be in. On the one hand, it would be fitting to name it after a leader who served his community (presumably well) for a long time. On the other, you'd probably not want people to poke fun at it all the time.

    They should just name it after his brother Hugh.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I don't get it.

    You just can't make stuff that good up.
