Name that bridge

Posted By on Fri, May 12, 2006 at 4:34 PM

If it's good enough for the Huckabees, why not everyone else? If you don't already know -- and judging by our e-mail, lots of people do -- there's an on-line petition drive underway to name the pedestrian/bike bridge being built over Murray Lock and Dam for County Judge Buddy Villines, who pushed for the project.

While we're at it, what say we start a list of other projects suitable for renaming in honor of famous personages. Naming the federal bankruptcy courthouse for Tommy Robinson is one idea that pops to mind. You didn't ask, but the only place with which I have deep enough association for at least a small memorial plaque is, alas, defunct -- the D&D Cafe.
