What Would You Like Named After You (If Anything)?
Instead of covering all the scandals, the Gray Lady keeps on pumping out all of the rest of the news that's fit to print. Drudge links to this New York Times story that reports that, while Congress may be mostly useless, it is humming on all cylinders in fulfilling one of its more important duties: naming post offices.
Which got me to thinking. Like most folks, I'd like to be remembered for more than a week after I throw off this mortal coil, preferably for my spotless life of charity and goodwill (sotto voce aside: "not gonna happen").
But I've got to say, I'll take a pass on having my name grace a post office. Somehow the thought of having my name on a nondescript federal building housing yet another failing bureaucracy isn't the way I want to be remembered.
On the other hand, if the Navy wants to put my name on a new aircraft carrier (or even a humble mine-sweeper), that would work for me.
Would having your name on a post office make you feel that your legacy is assured, or not?
If you could have your name attached to something, what would it be? Naval ship, new fighter jet, university, beautiful building, street, famous endowed professorship, waste disposal facility, nuclear waste site, etc.? Why?
