By John Hubbuch

The South Marion Business District has decided to rename itself Pleasant District in a post-construction re- branding of the area. Why not? New and different is good. We re-named the junior highs. There are lots of other re-branding possibilities. The area around the Mohr factory on the southside. could be called Cementville. Down Town Oak Park could be the Lake Street Theater District. And the stretch of Madison between Home and Oak Park Avenue given all the empty lots and storefronts  could be called Detroit.
