My way or the highway?

What a great hack the state of Missouri just did!

However, the legislators did pass a bill meant to tweak the Springfield chapter of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement. According to a report in Sunday's Springfield News-Leader, Rep. Sara Lampe (D-Springfield) got an amendment added to a transportation bill designating a portion of West Bypass from Farm Road 142 to West Sunshine as the "Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel Memorial Highway."

That was the portion of roadway the NSM'ers "adopted" last fall by pledging to regularly pick up litter there. Signs marking such "adoptions" are then erected by the state Department of Transportation. The DOT didn't think it could turn down the NSM request without infringing on the group's First Amendment rights.
