I inadvertently clicked on a link to an AL.com article today regarding the possibility of the Government Plaza being renamed in honor of Sam Jones.
While I suppose we should let him fully take the blame for that beacon of tasteless design and poor construction, I’m filled with revulsion at having his name associated with any edifice in which innocent civilians might interact.
I do realize that he has ‘served’ both the county and city for a number of years, but I think a far more appropriate memorial would be to rename the Chastang Landfill in his honor. Thoughts?
