    Has Offbeat and Politix merged into one?...between this and the redneck bucket challenge...it's getting hard to tell the two apart....anyhow, not political in the least...but...naming something after Williams sounds fine...just to be clear though...he was a heterosexual

    And how do you know that for sure? And, why is it important 'to be clear'? Robin WIlliams was totally comfortable with his sexuality regardless if he was straight, gay or bisexual.

    well, he was married and claimed to be hetrosexual...but...it was suppose to be a joke...since it's a rainbow tunnel connecting to San Francisco ...but...I agree...I don't think he would have a problem with having the tunnel named after him

    What about poor William Waldo? Are we to forget about him, now?
    Find something new to dedicate to Robin Williams. Or a street named after a tree or bird or nut.

    You don`t need a tunnel named after you , when you were unable to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    OK, one vote up for creativity.
    You might have said:
    "You don't need a tunnel named after you, when all you have left to do is go towards the Light."

    I honestly couldn't care less what they are called. I drive through through those two pieces of crap two or three times a week and hate every friggen minete I am on that retarded stretch of road and I hate the the inconsiderate, incompetent drivers.

    A large hole with a rainbow around it may not be something Robin was into ?He was straight right?I have visited San francisco many times it is what it is.

    Wasn't this the tunnel that was on the cover of a Dead Kennedy's album? I seem to remember a gasoline truck blowing up inside there, killing a bunch of folks. But that was 35 or so years ago, a lot of water under my bridge since then. Funny about getting old, weird stuff pops up in my memories from time to time. Love San Francisco, great city, but my stomping grounds run from Ensenada to San Clemente and I tend to stick around home.

    no, it sure ain't.....at least my junk still works good, the old lady's happy. me too. semi-retirement at the beaches I grew up at, old friends still kicking, It's all pretty good. I do miss that '53 pan I used to have though. it was still fun, but too many assholes turning left in front of me, especially here in San Diego county. Got a convertible, still fun, but not the same....but I ought to live longer. old lady is happy about that too.

    @SDBruce Live fast, die young, leave good looking corpse. Well crap, I can't afford to live fast, so that's out. I'm approaching retirement, So much for dying young. And I was never was all that handsome, so...

    BUT I still have the `57, just need to hang the sidecar back on!

    @PanheadPhlox After posting this morning, I started hinting around to the old lady about pulling it out of the garage.....put some oil in it, gas, check the lines, do a little wrenching....you know, the usual shit....she said why? are you going to sell it? I said no, and she said NO. But I think I'll do a little wrenchin' this week-end, maybe even put the factory siren back on. My dad bought 2 Army surplus when I was 8 or 9 (1963-64) Still in the crates, OD Green, Big white star on them, white rubber grips, 5 headlights, 3 white, one blue, one red. siren, all the trimmings. Moved to SoCal when I was 15 (Camp Pendelton) Dad was career Marine. Thought I would get the other at 18, but Mom said no. Kinda forgot about it, then we put it together when I was 30. It was so ugly it was beautiful, and I had already laid down many bikes because of assholes so I was more into just very limited use by then. The old lady is happier sitting on it revving it up in the garage. It's stock, it's cherry, and has less than 5K on it. Love to find an old military sidecar for it, it has the hardware connection.....Lots of good memories in that old hog.

    come on this is embarrassing 11,000 people signed it really? I'll bet I can get 11,000 people to want to rename the Big Mac in 2 days...maybe his fans should just let him go

    Isn't a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame enough? He was an entertainer for heavens sake. We're not talking about a doctor who invented penicillin or someone who was instrumental in the freedom of the Eastern European block nations. Williams politics sucked as far as I'm concerned but he was a comic genius.

    Too much Booze, Drugs, Womanizing, Cheating on his Marriage and so on to be a real Hero. Did you know Loren Bacall died the same week? Many servicemen gave their lives for this country.

    Rename it, tunnel.

    I am not certain that it would be appropriate 50 years from now when people supporting this start dying off and no one remembers this comedian. How about naming it after a deceased gay war veteran instead. Robin was a wonderful man and actor, why not give an annual stage award in his name for comedy excellence?

    Considering all of the douchey politicians who have structures or roads named after them, it would be good to have someone memorialized who gave a lot to causes, brought depression front-burner, and entertained millions.
