A boondoggle by any other name -

Is still a boondoggle.

Changing the name of the Trinity River Vision because of its negative connotations won't get them funding either.

The article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram asks Could the TRV become Panther City Island, maybe?

The article then goes on to tell you it's pretty much a done deal.  (So do the new mailers from the TRVA).

It says they are gauging the new name but in it's closing sentence, it negates all that.  

“This plan is known by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) simply as ‘Central City,’ but to most of the public it is called ‘Panther Island’ (formerly Trinity Uptown).”

By the way, we don't know anyone who calls it that.  They have much more colorful names for it.
