What will they name for Reagan next?

Though it never waited around for him to die before launching on its campaign to name everything in America for Ronald Reagan, I expect that the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project is getting ready to switch into high gear now that the former president is officially, 100 percent, undeniably dead.

The RRLP counts among its successes:
    The Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. The Reagan federal office building Reagan highways in Florida, California, Ohio, and Illinois The nuclear aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and the Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site, Kwajalein Atoll (this one seems particularly appropriate

Other projects proposed or on the drawing boards:
    Putting Reagan on Mt. Rushmore Replacing Alexander Hamilton with Reagan on the ten-dollar bill Erecting a Reagan memorial on the Mall in Washington D.C.

So, my question: what do you think would be an appropriate tribute to the memory of Ronald Reagan. And what do you think will be the next big thing named after or dedicated to Reagan?

I'm not just going to speculate, I'm going to TELL you. Monday, the seventh, I am going to officially dedicate my Gameboy to Raegan. The ceremony I have planned will be small, including my wife, daughter and any in-laws who are interested. Eight o'clock central time, if anyone cares. The following day I'll sum things up in a thread.

How's about the Chimp enclosure at San Diego Zoo?

I agree. It will have to be something big, something fabulously, insanely big. I'm thinking: THE UNITED STATES OF REAGAN.

The Pledge of Allegiance would sound something like this:
"I pledge allegiance to the Reagan
Of the United States of Reagan
And to the Reagan, for which it stands,
One Reagan, under Reagan, indi-Reaganable,
With liberty and Reagan for all.
Amen.

You know, you can fit "Raegan" into that pledge a few more times if you turn it into an adverb.

Example: I pledge Raeganly allegience to the Raeganly Raegan.

I am sure all the grateful citizens of Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua will contribute to any such an effort to mark to passing of a man who made such a mark on their lives (if they still had one by the 1990s).

Ya know, it's been a long time since anyone's had an ocean named after them. Antarctigo Vespucci was last, and that was... what... 200 years ago?

I say we rename sun "Big Raegan," the earth "Raegan" and the moon "Little Raegan." That's not too confusing.

Well, I think they'd want to put his face on it.

The other end is much more attractive, though.

I think that the next anti-personnel mine a US firm markets should be the "RR-(insert number here)" for the selfless work he did for the arms industry.

Failing that 'ketchup/ketsup' could be renamed 'Sauce d'Reagan' and a hybrid tomato grown will actually convert itself into sauce and realise the vision of that man in transforming a condiment to a 'vegetable'.

And never forget his support for the misunderstood science of astrology.

Are peppers technically fruit? I've always said so, but no one ever agrees... or listens... or respects me.

To be honest, no-one wants to lose an argument with a large blob of protoplasm. Sorry to be so brutal about it.
