A had a nice, brief visit with my nephew Kale while in Minneapolis for an assignment. Having just visited South Dakota (a few weeks before this uncle), Kale came home, and with the help of his artist mom, recreated the Badlands on his bedroom walls. Only in Kale's 5-year-old, upbeat head, the name didn't seem to match such a beautiful landscape.
So he's taken to calling it the Gladlands. South Dakota Tourism Board: Your thoughts?
