What's in a Name?



In the interest of "see/say," I must say that I am sickeningly disgusted by the large billboard on U.S. Highway 101 advertising the band Cherry Poppin' Daddies. As a victim of child incest, I find the name of this band triggers my PTSD every day as I drive to and from work. Why not just call the band "Ugly Middle-aged sex abusers of their own daughters" instead?

The grimly leering faces of these jerks are a testament to insensitivity in the name of misogyny and they don't belong in the bucolic rural scenery of our beautiful roadway. I say boycott Blue Lake Casino until they take the sign down.
