"Big R" naming hits road block

The highway interchange at I-40 and Coors needs (?) a name. A few of Governor Bill Richardson's cronies think it should be named after him.

Local radio talk show host Jim Villanucci started a bit of a rebellion yesterday when he started soliciting names of people and groups more deserving of recognition than Richardson; there were many.

Apparently there is a meeting this morning at the Unser Museum, where the naming will be discussed. Villanucci was begging people to show up and end the nonsense. Isn't it enough that a choo train engine has been named Big Bill?

Larry Barker did a piece on the wholesale naming of various edifices after after each other by a bunch of political insiders, link.

Even Journal editors are stirred up, link.

There is an oft used expression offered to folks who've over stayed their welcome;

"Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out!"
I always wondered what that would look like. This situation may be illustrative; being stripped of this "honor" for the lame duck Governor could well be,
the door hitting him in his ass on his way out.

Go Villanucci!

Then let's name the dump or the sewage treatment center after him?
What a disgrace!
This is why Democrats are losing ground. They too are out of touch, relying on party loyalty over what is good for their constituents. they have become comfortable believing they know what is good for us, although they are far removed from being anything like us in their ivory towers.
The same goes for Brooks and his cronies. What do they really know about educating kids?
