There’s a movement afoot among those wacky San Franciscans to rename a local sewage plant in “honor” of George W. Bush.
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.” Genius.
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.
If you visit their Presidential Memorial Commission site, you’ll note that the board of directors include fabulous drag entertainer Peaches Christ (which is still my one of my favorite drag names ever), and Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence members Sister Porn Again and Sister Selma Soul. I love my people.
