Democratic Mayor Tom Henry received some warm words from an unexpected source last week – Rush Limbaugh.
And it’s all about Harry Baals.
Limbaugh on Friday read from a letter the mayor sent to the talk show host.
“The people of Fort Wayne are still chuckling about your send-up of our community, our former mayor, Harry Baals, and our search for a name for our new local government center. We love the joke.”
Henry invited Limbaugh to Fort Wayne, sent some info about the city – and included a T-shirt that reads: “You already know Fort Wayne has Baals. Come see our other assets.”
Limbaugh discussed his visit to the city to play golf, though he couldn’t remember the year (1999), the name of the pro-am (the Mad Anthonys) or where it was played (Fort Wayne Country Club).
“We just had a great time,” Limbaugh said. “What a great letter. It’s a great T-shirt.”
