TMD Puts It Down

Congressman Davis regulated on colleague Henry Bonilla of South Texas in today's WaPo. According to the Post, Congressman Bonilla (whose not from DC) slipped in a bill before the recess to rename 16th St. "Ronald Reagan Blvd". But alas, Congressman Bonilla shouldn't get involved in TMD's space. Best punch from Davis: "If Congressman Bonilla wants to name anything else, he has to look at his own district in San Antonio." Here's a nickle worth of free advice to Congressman Bonilla: D.C. might vote for Eleanor Holmes Norton, but no one questions who owns the town. Can he still run D.C. from the Senate?

As big a fan of Reagan as I am, I have to agree with Davis on this one. Heck, I led the grassroots effort in PWC in support of Del. Lingamfelter's bill to designate Route 234 as Ronald Wilson Reagan Memorial Highway (just saw the first signs for that the other day.) Anyway, I never thought that I would say that I agree with Eleanor Holmes Norton, but she has it right in terms of 16th Street's historic role.

Those were my thoughts exactly Riley!

Of course maybe we could start a movement to rename the entire town. Reagan, DC.

I'm a Reagan fan also. Nonehteless, one of DC's interesting features is the street-naming system. It works very well. Alphabet designations on E-W streets, numbers on the N-S streets, diagonal avenues named after the states. Congressmen from Texas shouldn't be able to come in and upset that well-established apple cart. It has a purpose. I suppose we could re-name "Rodman Street" "Reagan Street" up in the second alphabet, but do we really need to do that? Besides, doesn't Admiral Rodman deserve to keep his street?

Not if residents are thinking it is named after Dennis Rodman.....

two thoughts here - name the street and it will make driving thereworse if that were possible. not naming the street and the driving still sucks. bonilla should be more concerned about the performance of DC school and potholes. is he introuble with the base or was that the jack talking down at capital grille?

Perhaps the latter knowing Bonilla.

Well, if Martin Luther King deserves a street named after him in every jurisdiction, doesn't Reagan?
