Name a Creek in Iowa ("Ron Paul Creek")? Maybe we should buy this...

I just heard on the radio this morning that the town of Kalona, IA, is going to be auctioning off naming rights to the creek that runs through town (current uninspiring name, "West Drainage Ditch").

Here's the news story:

How cool would it be to name it "Ron Paul Creek?"

The auction is supposed to start in the next few weeks---I'll keep this forum posted.

I think it's pretty brilliant!

Do you think the news stations all over Iowa would cover the story?

Great thinking... But I read one of the comments which questioned whether it was really just a drainage ditch?

"Ron Paul Creek" sounds nice though.
