A Delaware district decided not to name a school after Joe Biden, but this one’s a far better idea. Putting the name of the Conductor of the Train to the Future on something that consistently loses millions is a much more fitting way to honor the veep.

NBC Philly:

Frequent train rider, Vice President Joe Biden will be forever linked with the Wilmington train station.

In honor of the long-time Amtrak rider and strong advocate of passenger rail, the newly renovated station will be dedicated as the Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Railroad Station on Saturday.

As a U.S. Senator from Delaware for 36 years, Biden regularly traveled by train between Wilmington and Washington, D.C.

Wilmington Station underwent a nearly two-year, $37.7-million renovation. Funding for the project included $20 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Moral of the story: When you’re the Sheriff in charge of doling out taxpayer cash, always make sure to save out a few million for something that can be named after you in appreciation for your generosity.
