Today, I signed on to a clever MoveOn petition. Per the organizers:
The City of Los Angeles recently honored former President Barack Obama by renaming a stretch of the 134 Freeway near Downtown L.A. in his honor.
We request the New York City Mayor and City Council do the same by renaming a block of Fifth Avenue after the former president whose many accomplishments include: saving our nation from the Great Recession; serving two completely scandal-free terms in office; and taking out Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind September 11th, which killed over 3,000 New Yorkers.
The block to be renamed “President Barack H. Obama Avenue?” Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets, otherwise known as the home of Trump Tower.
