I swear, it is like people have lost their minds. At one point, not to long ago, people were supposed to have accomplished something significant before having things named after them. Apparently that is no longer a requirement.

It's also been traditional to name things after people after they have retired or died. It can be embarrassing otherwise. I'm supposed to fly to the "Ted Stevens International Airport" in Anchorage next spring. I wonder what it will be called by then.

Oh, for fuck's sake! This is getting beyond ridiculous to just plain ludicrous.


At the behest of its students, an elementary school near New York City has been renamed after President-elect Barack Obama.

So that's the official procedure for changing a school's name these days?

In that case, you'd think there would be a lot more Hannah Montana Elementary Schools.

If it makes you feel any better, they named a sewage treatment plant in the Bay Area after Bush.

No they didn't. Try to keep up. The measure was voted down.

Media coverage surrounding him right now gives the impression that he has been in office for eight really successful years.

He isn't even in yet...

My hometown had already named everything after Gerald Ford, so when he died, there was nothing new to name after him when he died!

They had already named a freeway, the community college's field house, a library in AA at UM, and the airport after him, as he is the most famous person to ever come from Grand Rapids. Second most famous is Roger B. Chaffee (dead astronaut), and then it goes down to a tie between Gillian Anderson, El DeBarge and Anthony Keidas.

LOL :D

I actually met Mr. Keidis once, when I lived in Japan. And what appeared to be his GF. Nice guy.

The Lord and Ruler of Amerika
And to his Socialist Republic

one Obamanation, there is no other God,
no more individuals, for free mortgages and full gas tanks for all.
