Little History lession for ya all. How do you think ladies of the night got the slang term hooker. General Hooker was kind of one who like some compaionship at night if ya know what I mean.
Freakly I don't care about a St name. the world is getting to PC at times.

I heard General Hooker hired girls to keep his troops morale high. They were known as "Hooker's Girls". It was later shortened to just "Hookers".

They were actually called "Hooker's Brigade". The term was actually used in 1845 for prostitutes before General "Fighting Joe" Hooker was in action. He contributed to the term though. I once lived in Tulsa and that name didn't bother me in the least. Even while suffering from dyslexia.

He wants the Whitewood, South Dakota, City Council, to change the name of the street. Baer says the name Hooker Street is offensive to some in the Black Hills town.

This guy is a moron.
