Summary
For generations the town of Winthorp was happy with it's name, but in order to attract new industry and bring some excitement to the community they decided to hire a consultant, who would help find a more suitable name. As you might expect, everyone had their own opinion. This is a wry commentary on the our current notions of contemporary culture and our dependence on marketing strategies
Summary
A small Midwestern town is having an identity crisis--should they have a new techno-savvy name or a name honoring the freedmen who founded the town? Or is the current name just fine? They call in a professional naming consultant, famous for naming Apex bandages--guaranteed to match any skin color. But even he is losing his faith in monikers
