Can we change the name of Columbus to something like Capital City? I'm sick of the name Columbus. There's a million other Columbuses. Besides, in my book it's a shitty name named after a pirate from Italy. Not that I don't like pirates, but maybe it would help us out. Oh and Flash is from Capital City, no maybe it's Central City, that would be fine too. The name of our town sucks. It's too homogenous. It's like living at CVS. Thoughts???

I was looking through North Carolina in an atlas today and ran across a city called Kill Devil Hills. I think we should call Columbus something like Blood Pool Resevoir City.

And Glenn Beck has made mayor Mike Coleman nationally famous and infamous at the same time!

Hopefully it will draw attention away from KB/RP AKA nutcase campaign.

Wouldn't that be nice?
LOL......a right wing backfire that's bigger than the cannon explosions during the "1812 Overture" on the 4th of July. :D

To back up Nerfler's point, last night on ESPN2 there was a NBDL game being televised. One of the teams had Columbus on their jerseys. The team is obviously either not located in Columbus, OH or the team's marketing department is seriously dropping the ball.

I think Imperial City has a good ring to it. We'll have Roddy Bottom play the rechristening show.

How many cities named Columbus are out there? I'd like to know. I'm feeling gypped all of a sudden.

See what I mean people????

We're lost in the shuffle.

I like Imperial City. If I had a Chinese Buffet I'd name it that.

The sad thing is I'm not joking, I would vote to change the name of our city.

Cincinnati, Cleveland, everyone west of the Mississippi knows where those cities are and respects them as cities. But you say "I'm from Columbus" assertively and the say one of many responses.

1.Ohio??

2.Oh where is that??

3.The Capital of West By God Virginia??

We don't have a strong identity man!!

We have the Buckeyes. The jury's still out on this one. My Parents went there and that's why I grew up here, but there's gotta be more to the story.

Most people are either coming or going, and we see a mass exodus of talented people every year.

This place is great!! It's cheap, If you are in a band it's a great location to base yourselves. Half of the population of the USA is no more then 12 hours away. If you network and make friends, you can have a really good time as a band here. I guess it is really easy to sit around and watch cable, but you can catch a good show on at least one night of the week no matter what your favorite music is. I wish we were prettier though. We've really shit on any cohesiveness in our town. Just look at the skyline, it's like nobody cared what the hell it looked like all together. And all the freakin malls man, jeez!!

You might think I'm kooky, but we need a face. I seroiusly think that by drawing attention to ourselves by saying "hey, we want to change our homogenous name" "We want an identity" would help a little bit.

Don't get me wrong, I used to Cowlombus hate, I grew up here moved and came back, and now I dig it more than ever. I've met a vast and talented amount of people that really inspire me.

Cleveland= lake, old arcithecture, blue collar

Cincinnati= river, hills, WKRP

Columbus= Family ties, bucks, college, ???? Comfest!!

End of rant.
Vote now.
