Sad that they wouldn't name the new government center after him.  It's almost as if they're ashamed of their Harry Baals.

I saw a British game show where contestants had to guess the made-up politician.  The fake name was "Lance Thrust".


The real names were "Dick Swett", "Butch Otter", "Young Boozer", "Lady Garden", and a 5th one I'm now forgetting.

"Fort Wayne newscaster Bob Chase, of WOWO-AM, relates a story that he once pronounced the mayor's name "Bales." Mayor Baals personally called him following the broadcast to correct his pronunciation, saying, "son, this is your Mayor. I pronounce my name 'Balls'."
