Alaska's Ted Stevens problem

Washington Post:
ANCHORAGE, July 30 -- Alaska's vast landscape is littered with federally funded tributes to Sen. Ted Stevens's single-minded promotion of the state, from the brushed steel of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport to the $187 million that subsidizes air mail for the one-third of residents who live beyond the reach of roads.

Apparently everything in Alaska is named after Ted Stevens, lately indicited on corruption charges. Reminds me of this Achewood comic:

This is the very simple reason why I don't believe in naming things after people who are still alive.
