Re: (Fwd) Well, Maybe One More!

funny thing about this....

in houston we had a sports/entertainment center call the summit. compaq 
donated some money to the city of houston and it is now called the compaq 

we have a new baseball field in the process of being built. enron just 
announced they will give some $100 million to the city so that it will be called 
enron field. 

next, will some company donate money and change the name of a city to 
their name?

it appears that not only does money talk in city government but now, in 
amateur radio as someone has taken a lot of money to allow swatch to do 
their thing.
