Can't Make This Stuff Up.

In response to my post on megalomaniac naming practices in Milwaukee, reader Dean sent me this.

Dear Father,
Your comments on naming this brought to mind a situation one of my former employers had a few years ago.
I honestly don't know why they decided to rename one of our camps for a famous entertainer, but the Boy Scout council hardly had the new signs up before those signs bearing the name of a person who had never been a Scout and whose religion was hostile to Scouting. The day after he was arrested for child molestation, the original name returned to Camp Michael Jackson.
