steve is certainly entitled to his opinion, and i am glad that he doesn't live in CT or MA to write his opposition letter.
the logic, however, doesn't make much sense to me:
natural features exist because they're natural. we shouldn't give names to otherwise boring features just because they are politically interesting. makes sense so far, except that the names of features, naturally interesting or not, are given by a political entity. so if steve lived in CT or MA, he was going to write a political entity about not giving a political name to a feature that is politicallly interesting, but not naturally interesting.
