That's cool stuff, Mark.

But, I can never think about that name without remembering bachophile's face when I told him how that town is pronounced.

Then, I told him, "You think that's bad? How about 'Des Plaines'?"

Not sure of the accuracy of this but, I once heard that Beloit was/is a potential target for bombing mainly due to the Fairbanks Morse plant.
