I don’t know, is this a thank you for all the fed money we’re getting for the wasteful Central Subway?
Next stop, Willie L. Brown Jr. Boulevard!
Thank you, drive through.
Uh, shouldn’t we wait until people die before honoring their legacy?
I think so.
Otherwise you end up with something like Saddam Hussein Abd al-Majid al-Tikriti International Airport, with Uday Terminal and Qusay Terminal, right?
(Incidentally, Willie Brown was behind a push to change the name of SFO to Willie Brown International back in the 1990’s. I’m srlsy. Then the airport people came back with a study showing how the IATA code letters SFO constituted one of the world’s best-known “brands.” So that was the end of that proposal. But the impulse is the same, in’nt? The desire to have one’s name all over the place, statues, busts and the like. How sad!)
