Dubya Memorial Sewage Treatment Plant will go on ballot

newyorker_2005_09_191.jpgThe city Department of Elections today certified the ballot measure for November’s election to name a sewage treatment plant in San Francisco after the 43rd President.

The “satiric” (sic) effort became a reality when 7,168 of the over-12,000 signatures turned in were approved by the elections department.

The plant, presently named the Oceanside Water Treatment Control Plant, is located near the Zoo (click for a map!).

    Heck, why stop with the sewage treatment plant? By the same reasoning, you should rename the city Bushville since the whole town has become a sewer of pseudointellectual garbage.
