What’s in a name?

This was brought to my attention from The Corner.

RODEO, Calif.- Animal rights activists want the East Bay town of Rodeo --and pronounced ro-day-oh -- to change its name to Unity.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says the name recalls the sport of rodeo. They claim rodeo animals are abused and mistreated.

If Contra Costa County supervisors vote to change the name, PETA says it will donate $20,000 worth of veggie burgers to local schools.

I wonder if the Germans would rename Hamburg in exchange for some veggie treats. Someone should probably ask.

Veggie burgers in the schools? What makes these people think kids are going to eat $20,000 worth of veggie burgers? I don’t even touch those things!
