Is This Story For Real?

Well, Jonathan Turley doesn't mark it as a hoax:

No Baals in Fort Wayne: City Officials Refuse To Name Center After Former Mayor Harry Baals

When city officials called upon the public to name their new government center in Fort Wayne, the public responded overwhelmingly in selecting a former mayor. That would normally seem an ideal choice for officials . . . unless the former mayor’s name is Harry Baals (pronounced “Balls”). Officials said that they have decided not to let the voters pick after all to avoid a sign reading “the Harry Baals Government Center.”


I wish I lived in a city that had Harry Baals...

(Turley follows up with the classic SNL fake "NPR" video segment about Schwetty Balls. If you've never seen it, it's worth a view.)
