A desalination plant that officials say is the world's largest outside a coastal area and is expected to supply this desert city with water for 50 years opened for business Wednesday.
The opening of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Desalination Plant, named for Texas' senior U.S. senator, marked the end of a 15-year project to design, fund and build the plant that eventually will be capable of supplying 27.5 million gallons of drinking water daily.
Whoa. When did we become West Virginia? At the least, how about we try to name infastructure after people who aren't currently serving? But at least we're not naming things after KKK members like Robert Byrd.
Personally, I like Fred Thompson's stance better:
I read where the naming of a segment of U.S. Highway 43 in Lawrenceburg after me is under consideration. I cannot blame anybody if there is hesitation to name another thing for another politician or former politician. But I must say that I am very appreciative of my friends in Lawrenceburg and Lawrence County who originally had this idea. The fact that they would want to do this is more important to me than the naming itself. My daddy's car lot was on that stretch of road, so it's special to me, but the fact is that I didnít build it and I didnít pay for it. The taxpayers did.
Years of public service (with more to come I'm sure) and her "reward" is the KBH desalinization plant.
got all crazy with the zations on that one.
Dang new ergonomic keyboards.
