People on rec.arts.comics.strips have been talking about words and symbols being co-opted, and someone talked about a restaurant called “Gay Dan’s” which had an 1890s theme, but which changed its name after the word “gay” became overwhelmingly associated with homosexuality. Someone related this story in response:

> About Gay Dan’s Restaurant: I remember reading
> several years ago that a community in California
> decided to change the name of one of its street
> from “Gay Street” to “Screaming Eagle Drive.”
> The local gay community then announced that they
> were no longer referring to themselves as “gay”
> but that homosexual men would henceforth be
> called “Screaming Eagles.”
