If we were going to change names for everything, then all mountains, rivers, cricks, towns, and roads would have to be renamed with names we already joke about. For example:

-Homer can be called "Homeroids"
-Anchorage can be called "Los Anchorage"
-Fairbanks: Squarebanks
-Valdez is fine as it is. All we have to do is to move some folks from Los Anchorage to Valdez and call Valdez "La ciudad de Valdez."

Just kidding with you.

I suppose that's better than having Exxon sponsor Valdez.
