Harry Baals Receiving National Attention

Jimmy Kimmel is just one of many to pick up this story and run with it. I especially love the article from MSNBC – “Scratch Harry Baals Off List of Names for Government Center.”

And the Twittersphere is all frenzied on the subject too… someone even made up some t-shirts (https://shirtyshirtshirt.com/Wear/Harry-Baals). Wow.

I suppose, as with anything, all of the hub bub surrounding this issue will die quickly.

My personal opinion is, that while Mayor Baals may deserve the honor, we shouldn’t name our Government Center after him. I am sorry, maybe that means that I have the mentality of a 12 year old, as this site suggests.

What do you think?

  1. I’m with you, I’m sure we can other ways to honor Mayor Baals. I do enjoy the jokes, I too have the 12 year old sense of humor. Did you see how expensive the t-shirts were? Funny, but expensive.

    1. I am sure too- like even changing it to HW Baals like the street… Unfortunately, this isn’t the kind of attention Fort Wayne needs. But you know what they say, any press is good press 🙂
