A legend in his own mind

Posted By on Mon, Jun 6, 2011 at 6:31 AM

Speaking of the Arkansas Lottery:

A friend driving back from South Carolina reports a double-take at crossing a bridge leaving Charleston and seeing it named the Ernie Passailaigue Connector Bridge.

A local newspaper article explains the quaint practice of slapping low-grade politico names on bridges all over the place there, including an overpass bridge for Ernie P., a former state senator and lottery director.

Wonder what we could name for Ernie P. when the high-dollar lottery boss moves on?
