What Do We Call Them?

Monday 28 December 2009

While reading Steve Amick‘s novel The Lake, The River, & The Other Lake, I was reminded of how locals in tourist towns often have names for tourists. It’s not (usually) meant in bad humor, it’s a way to form a community bond. (Yeah, sure.)

I can’t think of a name Ashlanders use for the tourists, so I’m proposing a number of them. Please vote!

    Bardistas is an awesome name! Even if it doesn’t get the most votes I’m starting the campaign now. All we have to do is get OSF behind the name and it becomes part of our community’s lexicon.
