Taco Bell's Grand Army Plaza

How far is society sinking? New York City has just sold the naming rights to some subway stops to Barclay's bank. $4M.

Hopefully subway riders will ignore it and just call the stop ... whatever they are calling it now, some nexus of the subway stops at Atlantic Avenue, Pacific Street and Flatbush Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn.

American don't care that their heritage is being sold out from underneath them.
Straphangers at the Atlantic Avenue station like Nick Desio, 53, a Citigroup employee who commutes from Long Island, said names were beside the point. “They can call it anything they want, as long as my train’s on time,” he said.

The Catholic Church should start charging for saint sponsorships. Coca Cola has been using Saint Nick for free for nearly a century.
