As I started watching this video, Harry Balls didn`t even cross my mind. I guess that`s because I play a lot of Diablo and know how to properly pronounce it.

If they`re all so concerned about correct pronunciation, they`d be better off wondering why no one is able to say "Harry" properly - at least "Baals" isn`t a common spelling to come across in English.

It is pronounced:
Bail (like "Posting bail")
Tha (Like in "THAnks")
Zack (Like in "exZACtly how you`d expect").

We have Ed Balls over here. He used to be in charge of education or something and kids were given out cooking books with `Balls` on them. My brother has one of the books, but I think Balls is doing a different job now.

Let me get this straight. The city of Ft. Wayne asked their residents for input into the naming of the new Government Center. They offered Harry Baals as a candidate. But when the people voted overwhelmingly in favor of Harry Baals, the city council is ashamed of their former mayor’s name and won`t name the building after him.

Why ask the people for input if the city is not going to listen?
If they are ashamed of Harry Baals, why offer the name as a candidate?

I`d bet a million dollars that if he had a different name, the online vote would win it. Of course, even if he was a great mayor, he might not have received that many votes if he had a different name.

Reminds me of Colbert getting the most votes for that wing of the I.S.S. but not getting it named after him because he wasn`t instrumental in the science/space community.

It is not pronounced Bales. It is pronounced Balls. Harry`s sister changed the pronunciation after Baals died, so in rererence to him, its "balls".

I like how the reporters keep using the old pronunciation knowing full well that they have changed it.

Although it`s now pronounced Bales, I think to properly honor him we should pronounce it like he did.

Why can`t they just call it `Baals Government Center`?

By the looks of the weather there, Harry Baals might not be that bad after all.

He must be one frikkin awesome mayor to have that kind of name and still be respected like that. Although they probably voted him the winner because of it, I mean who wouldn`t want to enter a building called "The Hairy Balls Bldg". Hehehehe
