San Francisco contemplates renaming sewage treatment plant after Bush

SF sewage treatment in honor of Bush

Where else but glorious San Francisco? A group of San Franciscan patriots has proposed a fitting tribute for our outgoing President:
Reagan has his highways. Lincoln has his memorial. Washington has the capital, and a state, too. But President George W. Bush may soon be the sole president to have a memorial named after him that you can contribute to from the bathroom.

From the Department of Damned-With-Faint-Praise, a group going by the regal-sounding name of the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is planning to ask voters here to change the name of a prize-winning water-treatment plant on the shoreline to the George W. Bush Sewage Plant.

The plan - hatched, naturally, in a bar - would place a vote on the November ballot to provide "an appropriate honor for a truly unique president."

Wow, I guess this is just proof that San Francisco is just a little different and more European than other cities. Good thing I have a hybrid to fit in with my fellow nonconformist freethinkers.

Adam gets a bunch of shit (so to speak) for an admitted editorial but vanderleun, the man who originally uttered "I am aware of all internet traditions" gets to comment here without any backlash whatsoever? The world's gone mad.
