DURST: Ronald Reagan Airport

The Republicans are taking a well deserved breather from the rigors of the Washington sex wars for another shot at changing the name of Washington's National Airport to Ronald Reagan Airport just in time for the Gipper's 87th birthday on Friday. And wouldn't we all like an airport named after us as the perfect birthday gift. Okay, well wouldn't a few of us?The GOP's previous attempt at this homage failed because of an amendment piled on by the Democrats to rename the Justice Department Building for former Attorney General Robert Fitzgerald Kennedy. Methinks, they are both good ideas. As a mattaer of fact, what we really need here is a gang renaming, and I'm just the guy to do it.The Gerald Ford Treasury Building Escalator Guardrail.
