    When did we start naming things in memorial for people that weren't even dead yet? Did it start with Reagan Airport or was it Jimmy Carter Blvd in GA? It's awful practice. I'm just waiting for them to rename something like the Tappan Zee bridge to "The (insert political face) Bridge" and then the guy/gal end up the center of some awful scandal/conspiracy...
    ...ya know, like Iran-Contra or something...
  • So it's ok to discriminate against the LGBT community? Shame on you...

    /my granddad worked for Hoover when the FBI was first founded. Has some good stories
    //he's 100 now
  • Move it to Trinidad, DC. I hear that area is lovely this time of year.
  • I had stuff stolen from my bike's panniers right in front of that building.
  • Of course we all know that the "J. Edgar Hoover was a transvestite" thing was just a bogus rumor, right?

    You mean other than the fact that he was a Native son of MD, sucessfully argued Brown V. Board, and was a Supreme Court Justice?

    Well how about this: He wrote a concurrence in an obscenity prosecution case that mde it clear that, with the exception of child porn, the Constitution would never allow a person to be criminally prosecuted under obscenity laws for mere private possession of porn.

    That alone should make him a hero to every man that's ever used the Internet
  • The farking weirdo transvestite?

    Executive transvestite

    No, it most certainly wasn't. The reason J. Edgar Hoover denied the Mafia even existed until RFK began his crusade against it was becuase Meyer Lansky had in his possession a photo of J. Edgar in a dress going down on another guy (Meyer was strongly rumored to be at least bi- himself). This photo was shared with the CIA during the Mob's brief period of cooperation with CIA on the plots to assasinate Castro and liberate Cuba, and was brought out anytime the CIA felt J.Edgar was breathing down thier necks.

    LBJ was reportedly aware fo the photo as well which is why he was the only US president who could make J. Edgar Hoover obey orders. The existence of the Photo has been confirmed by Lansky's longtime mistress and serveral CIA operatives who saw it at one time or another.

    It was one quote attributed to a "celebrity divorcee'" in one book. I'm gonna need more empirical evidence.

    Lana: OK, fine, I can't prove anything right now.
    Mallory: That didn't stop J. Edna Hoover from persecuting Martin Luther King, now did it?
    Lana: What does that have to do... Wait, J. Edna?
    Mallory: You never heard that? How Hoover was a huge cross-dressing chicken hawk?
    Lana: I had not.
    Mallory: Well that's exactly the kind of slanderous and unsubstantiated rumor that I will not tolerate at ISIS!
  • Everybody he had dirt on is dead or out of power now, I guess.

    Mine wasn't technically a troll, it was an incitement:

    Reagan busted up the Airtraffic Controllers Union, so it always seemed a bit insensitive to name an
    airport after him.
  • So transgenders are now on par with racists and blackmailers? Wow.
