Travel Documentarian Calls for Bay Bridge to Be Named for Emperor

Timothy "Speed" Levitch is — among many other things — a travel documentarian. Perhaps "travel philosopher" is a better term.

At any rate: The first episode of Up to Speed, Levitch's brilliantly offbeat 2012 travel series on Hulu, is about San Francisco. The episode includes a fabulous segment on Emperor Norton that concludes with Levitch calling for the whole Bay Bridge to be named for him.

The segment starts just after 12:20 and runs for about four minutes.

Alas, if you're not a Hulu subscriber, you'll have to wade through some advertising.

But it's well worth the wade. ;)
