Group Rallies to Name Sewage Plant after Bush

New, 4 comments

Caution: "Only in SF" moment ahead. The Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is lobbying hard throughout the city in order to place an initiative on the November ballot that, if passed, will change the name of the Oceanside Wastewater Treatment Facility to the George W. Bush Sewage Plant on Jan. 20, 2009, inauguration day. Based on informal polling, the group believes that they'll succeed in collecting the 7,200 signatures needed to put their plan in the hands of San Francisco voters. Quoth Wayne Pickering, chairman of the PMCSF: "We're leaving it up to the people to interpret the proposed ballot measure as a compliment or insult." [SF Business Times]
