I am writing concerning recent news regarding changes to the Frederick Towne Mall site.

While the proposed changes are very exciting for the area, the thought of referring to the site as “District 40” left me cold.

Surely we can find a warmer name for what will be an inviting, fun entertainment center in Frederick and would be more attractive to tourists and residents alike.

Perhaps reaching out to our residents might generate some more appealing ideas for a nickname.

I agree. District 40 sounds like it will be a red light district.

How about Diversity Strengthens Counties.


Maybe we could bring in a Florida firm to develop a logo and branding for the site?




I'm wondering why we all have to be so controlling, when we have no actual power and nothing happens when we try. Let's hate the name after it's such a huge success we can't get near it.


I suggest Pothead Palace, because that's what it will be about a year after it opens. The bowling alley should be called Bowling for Drugs. For each frame, a score of 10 gets you an ounce of pot. A spare gets you Special K. A strike gets you 2 oz. of snow. God Bless America how we need our Mexican drug runners! We can't live without them.


As always, I sincerely hope you are not and never have been a principal in our schools.


How about F-Town, and they can use the logo that the mayor bought.[smile]


I propose we name it District 9.


From the movie of that name?
