More Chávez Boulevard fireworks

This time in Dallas.

Here's an idea: Let's name every street Chávez, only we hyphenate it with the street's original name. That way the Chávez people are happy and everyone else can still use the old name.

So, 39th would be renamed Chávez-39th. MLK would be Chávez-MLK. And so on ...

When will identity politics ever die?

I don't know what happened here in PDX when the renaming issues came up as I am new here but if you read the article linked to above, how could you not see that what happened in Dallas was more than a lot like changing the rules after the game was over just to change the outcome? It's clear to me.
