How about naming rights for Lake Calhoun

It’s unfortunate that Lake Calhoun is named for a racist. But, until we’re reminded, probably not one in a hundred of us remembers that John C. Calhoun was such a person.

On the other hand, given that Hubert Humphrey did not have enough prestige for his name to be kept on the Metrodome and the rights to name the building had to be sold, perhaps we could do the same with Lake Calhoun. That seems to be the way of naming publicly-owned properties recently and I’m sure there would be a few local companies willing to kick in a couple grand to have the lake named after them.
