    South Dakota town may rename Hooker St.

    WHITEWOOD, S.D. - If the Rev. David Baer has his way, the Whitewood City Council will change the name of one of the northern Black Hills town's streets.

    Hooker Street doesn't quite lend itself to a family atmosphere and is offensive to some residents in the town of about 800 people, according to Baer.

    It's actually named after a Union general from the Civil War, but Baer said that even renaming it to General Hooker Street might not be much better.

    Any renaming would affect one resident and six water bill accounts, said Brenda Lindstrom, Whitewood city finance officer.

    The council is expected to discuss the request its Dec. 17 meeting.

    pretty stupid imo.
    Some people are just way too easily offended.
