Don’t honor Frick

After watching the History Channel and episodes of “The Men Who Built America,” I am convinced the name Frick Park needs a makeover. Henry Clay Frick was a ruthless maniac who called in the Pinkerton guards to kill strikers in Homestead. He kept wages low and hours long for the sake of becoming wealthier. Do we really want a park named after this type of person?

Why not name it after a person who truly did good for the people of Pittsburgh and the world? The person I have in mind is Jonas Salk. The man who virtually eliminated the polio virus around the world would be much more worthy of having a park named after him. This may seem silly, but think about it.
