It's nice to know I'll have something positive to vote on this November. Thanks to the efforts of the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco, I'll be able to recommend renaming the building pictured here.

Maybe while we're at it, we could propose Nicaraguans name this one in their country after Ronnald Reagan?
