Why Austin is Awesome

From NPR: “Those are Crappy Names for a Waste Department”

Austin’s Solid Waste Services Department decided it needed a new name. Something with a bit more panache. So they put it to the people of Austin in an online vote — and so far, their overwhelming choice seems to be “The Fred Durst Society of the Humanities and Arts.”

Fred Durst is the frontman for the hard-rock band Limp Bizkit. And while folks in Austin might think their music shares much in common with solid waste, the city may have trouble following the will of the people on this one.
