Mr. Doty Island wanted what?


So this is the guy who has an island named after him in Neenah.

Meet James Doty.

I bring him up on the show today because as it turns out he wanted our beloved state of Wisconsin to be spelled very differently than it is now.

And I bring THAT up because of a new segment on the PhilCast that will open the Wednesday show.

It's something called, "The Name Game", when I give you a list of my wife's latest pet peeve; Goofy spellings of names or just goofy names outright.

See the how it all goes together with Doty here now?
He had some bizarre French spelling of Wisconsin that he was obsessed with.

We'll discuss.
