The Ronald Wilson Reagan Memorial Exclusive Economic Zone is a phenomenal idea. If you’re unfamiliar with the plan, here it is:
The House Natural Resources Committee will likely approve legislation Wednesday that would name 3.4 million square nautical miles of ocean and thousands of miles of coastline after the late President Ronald Reagan.
Rep. Darrell Issa’s (R-Calif.) legislation would rename the country’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), which generally extends from three miles to 200 miles offshore, as the Ronald Wilson Reagan Exclusive Economic Zone.
I proposed another memorial for the Gipper on the Twitters:

But the more I think about this economic zone thing, the more I like it. When all the ice melts because humanity is committed to mass suicide via fossil fuel addiction, and the oceans inundate coastal America, it’ll be like Reagan is literally drowning the country.
You have to look for the silver lining in these kinds of things.
