An unfortunate name for a church . . .
Via e-mail from reader Kent L., who calls it 'unfortunate', we have this church notice-board:
Er . . . yes . . . quite! I found it hard to accept as real until I looked it up. There really is such a place, and such a church! It's marked by the green arrow on the map below, in northern Kentucky, just below the Ohio border, near Cincinnati.
I'm sure that when the place and the church were named, maybe a century or two ago, it was done for the furry aquatic animals that were probably found there. Unfortunately, the meaning of words and phrases has changed . . .
