Councilman wants to change Durango Boulevard to Chavez Boulevard
No real point in a quote. Once again, we've got a City Councilman who has determined that there is nothing pressing going on in this city, and so he should put his efforts toward renaming a street for a non-Texan.
Why in the living hell are we going through this again? Seriously. We don't have the money for this shit. Changing Durango's name wouldn't just mean the city would have to replace signage, it would force every single business along the way to change if not their signage then their letterhead, their advertising, etc.
And for no good reason. Who the hell is Cesar Chavez to San Antonio? Y'all can probably guess my opinion of honoring a union leader to begin with, but if we must go that route, where is the push to name a street after Emma Tenayuca? Yeah, Chavez is the dude everyone talks about, but Tenayuca was doing it long before he was, and she was a San Antonian. So if we have to name a street for a Marxist, how about doing it for a local Marxist? (And I'm not just saying that 'cause she went to my alma mater.) I have this near-unbearable urge to see if I can turn the Leftists against one another by suggesting she's being passed over because of sexism.
