George W. Bush Sewage Plant

You don't even want to know what this is, er, was.
But people in SF want to name the treatment plant after GWB.

We've Been Cleaning Up Bush's Mess for a Long Time.
People in San Francisco Want to Make it Official.

You've heard of Reagan Airport (used to be called National Airport.)

San Francisco wants to honor our 43rd President.


Looking to honor the forty-third President of the United States of America, George W. Bush, the recently formed Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco is looking to change the name of the Oceanside Wastewater Treatment Facility. It seems the group would like to rename the SF Zoo adjacent facility to the "George W Bush Sewage Plant."


The local grassroots movement, helmed by "Wayne Pickering," is proposing an ordinance initiative for the November 2008 San Francisco ballot in order to get the poop/pee/vomit plant's title changed. Why? To honor our current leader of the free world with an "appropriate and enduring legacy, for no other president in modern American history has accomplished so much in such a short time.
Check out the diagram.

As you can tell from the diagram (or this more detailed explanation), this plant calls for technical competence.

Ironic, actually, considering it's to honor George W. Bush.

But well, competence is what's needed to clean up messes, piles of steaming crap spread all over the world, not to mention the image of the United States.

Wouldn't it be great if sewage plants, land fills, and failed strip mines everywhere were named in GWB's honor? Or perhaps the GWB oil spill, for a particularly ugly ecological disaster?

Thank you San Francisco. Good work. Good luck in November.
