Who cares they're always changing corporation names"

Here in Van Nuys ports over a piece from WWG's blog about the battle waged by some residents in Van Nuys that want to be Sherman Oaks. Trouble is that neither Van Nuys wants to let them go nor does Sherman Oaks want to take them. Best line comes from Daily News writer and area resident Steve Rosenberg who says the motivation of the efforts' backers are to be able to maximize value by selling their Van Nuys bought homes at Sherman Oaks prices. Who's allegedly behind the effort? Wacky loony (not to be confused with "Wacko's Loon") Laurette Healey, the driving spokes-force behind the last two bamboozling failed solar ballot measures.
You can check out the insurgents web site and blog here. You would think they could use their time to more effectively actually attacking the issues and bettering their neighborhood than wasting time on a silly, elitist and racially tinged rebranding effort.
