DishEngelwood, Colorado-based corporate skylord EchoStar, owners of satellite provider Dish Network, recently announced its "DISH City Makeover" contest, in which the residents of the first city or town to officially (and permanently) rename itself "Dish" will receive free satellite equipment, installation and ten years of service. The town of Hot Springs, New Mexico did something similar when it changed its name to "Truth Or Consequences" after game show host and producer Ralph Edwards suggested it on-air in 1950 on his show of the same name. EchoStar's stunt has allegedly prompted NAMBLA to petition a hamlet in Nebraska to change its name to "Boylove".
