And in my opinion, Dennis' death is reason enough to change the F17 name even 
though it has already been voted upon... After all that is what paying your 
final respect is - changing your plans to acknowledge the passing of someone 
great. When you have a minute of silence, you don't just go out and say "mourn 
for a minute whenever don't have anything better to do" but you set a time and 
no matter what is going on, expect people to show their respects...
