Oh, I have a few ideas

D.C. wants to honor the memory of late Mayor-Not-Quite-For-Life, Marion Barry, whose most famous accomplishment was getting arrested for possession of crack.
Ideas proposed by community members to honor Barry include, according to the Washington City Paper, building a statue of the former mayor in front of city hall, renaming a high school in his old neighborhood after him and even establishing a museum for him.
Let me hear some of your suggestions for a fitting permanent tribute to this great man. Here are a couple of mine:

A playground in the late mayor's neighborhood featuring equipment shaped like giant drug paraphernalia - a crack-pipe slide, for example, maybe a teeter-totter shaped like a bong.

Or perhaps someday, proud students will graduate from Bitch-Set-Me-Up High School.

I hear there's a song called "Bitch better have my money" which that talented but misguided kid Rihanna sings. It's all just sad when you think how Marion used to rhyme with Librarian. The Music Man was right, even if he was a crook.

My suggestion is a statue of Marion Berry with a complimentary jail cell surrounding it.

A statue of him smoking crack and fondling a hooker. Did he do anything else while in office?

Maybe a mural showing him snorting coke off the belly of a 20-dollar hooker?

The mural in the style of Frank Frazetta, blowing crack smoke out his nostrils and The Bitch subjugated under his foot.

Name a prison after him
