You Can't Say This Doesn't Make a Statement

This may or may not be news to those of you in San Francisco, but here's the latest on the The San Francisco Department of Elections mission to rename the sewage plant in honor of George W. Bush for the Nov 4th general election: It's a go.

San Francisco may need to get its sh*t together on many levels, but you can't say that we don't know what we want to do with our poo. We want to dedicate it to George W. Bush.

I love this town.

Thanks to FogBay for first alerting me to this story a while back with follow up to the "official" site here.

Hi all,

At the end of the day, and reading your comments here, I think what we want to do in our hearts is name the actualy sewage after Our Fearless Leader and not the actual plant.

Anonymous makes a very good point. The sewage treatment plant serves a very important function and helps the public as well as the environment, not to mention the people that probably work very hard at their jobs at the plant.

Is there a way to just name the incoming detritus and name the good parts/treated outcome after someone else? Or perhaps that is just too confusing?

Maybe we are too silly here in SF.
