brantgoose: Naming a massive monument to the automobile after an environmentalist folk singer is funny in an ironic way, but for pure comedy, Tappen Zee is hard to beat. It may not follow the Krusty the Klown Rule of K but Dutch is very often hilarious because it sounds like a parody of English or German.
brantgoose: I think they should split the difference and name it the Pete Seeger Tappen Zee Bridge.
wildcardjack: Raffi for adults.
wookiee cookie: marcre3363: I drove it a few times during the 1.5 years I lived in Connecticut.Crappy drive. Terrible bridge.Wish I had more to contribute.terrible how? it's a bridge./driven it.
Krymson Tyde: People_are_Idiots: Oldiron_79: syrynxx: "Rock 'n' Roll Never Forgits" isn't a very good song. I don't see what all the fuss is about. Or that Risky Business song with the closeted guy dancing in his underwear.You're Putting on the Night Moves tonite. Thr RIP wrong person meme has really Turned the Page not needing pics anymore.You're Still the Same to me.Are the Night Moves he's doing Hollywood Nights?You mean down on Mainstreet?
Elroydb: I'd uhh rather not have a bridge named after an avowed STALINIST. Not just a communist but someone who approved and supported a man responsible for more deaths than Hitler and even declared the purges were rough but necessaryYeah no thanks. But not my state nor city so do whatever stupid things you want. Just keep driving successful tax-paying people out of NY. That'll work out well in the long runAlso? My state of VA would love to have those evil rich people live here
simplicimus: Anything named after Woody Guthrie? After all, his commie pinko song "This land is my land" is pretty much a standard these days. Woody first, then Pete.
HiFiGuy: The Tappan Zee Bridge is currently named for someone: Governor Malcolm Wilson. If anything should be renamed, it should be the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, since Seeger lived up there (which is already the Hamilton Fish bridge.) Maybe they can rename one of the spans.
Gulper Eel: That's if we're stuck naming bridges after him, which is profoundly idiotic. Seems like he'd have preferred a pond or a forest or a mountain named after him, if anything.
