Emperor Norton's Name May Yet Span The San Francisco Bay Bridge

I'm sure a lot of you don't know who Emperor Norton was. That's sad. Learn sometime.

A move to rename the bay bridge after Norton was brought to the Board of Supervisors, where it was approved, Dec. 14th, 8-2. The resolution, if approved by Mayor Gavin Newsom, next will travel to the Oakland City Council and on to the California Legislature. Rock on, Cali.

There's a little background in the story, enough for you to get the basics on Emperor Norton. And you should, because it's the most interesting story America has to tell. Period.
