I wonder why this particular 7655' non-ranked summit is suggested to be named:

I've said this on other forums, but I can't figure out how Mt Evans got on the target list, but they're totally cool with Evans Avenue and the City of Evans, things named after John Evans that people encounter day-to-day far more often.

Also, John Evans was not unambiguously evil, despite these activists' un-nuanced portrayals.
