Fort Wayne, Indiana has a bit of a Harry Baals problem
Some people pronounce it “Bales”, but Harry himself pronounced it “Balls”. He was Fort Wayne’s longest serving mayor an now the city wants to name a city center after him. Only a lot of people, despite the fact that Mr. Baals was a well-respected local politician, don’t want to be the butt of jokes by having the Harry Baals Center in their town. Respect the Baals.
