George Bush can’t seem to emerge from the shadow of his old boss Ronald Reagan, who’s been getting all the choice namesakes (e.g., the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C., and Reagan Washington National Airport). But President Clinton could lend some much-needed gravitas to Bush’s list of namesakes this winter by signing legislation authorizing the CIA to rededicate its Langley, Va., headquarters in his honor. The list already includes:

George Bush Intercontinental Airport Houston, Texas (dedicated in 1997)
George Bush Elementary School Midland, Texas
Bush Cabin at Big Cedar Lodge Ridgedale, Mo.
George Bush Plate Otto’s BBQ, Houston, Texas
President Bush’s Pizza (artichoke hearts, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, Italian sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, and black olives), Fuzzy’s Pizza, Houston, Texas
George Bush Bonefish Tournament Cheeca Lodge, Islamorada, Fla.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
