Georgia Street

Amazing sometimes how out of touch "city leadership" can be.

Case in point: the proposed renaming of Georgia Street.

This Indianapolis Observer -- and thousands of Indy residents -- are wondering just why this is necessary/important/desirable.

It was named Georgia Street when the city was platted almost two hundred years ago -- and we should change it, why? Because we're gonna host a Super Bowl?

Paul K. Ogden has a nice discussion of the decision on his blog, where he notes that the discussion became so rancorous that The Indianapolis Star had to disable comments.

Don't let 'em get away with it, folks. Save Georgia Street from disappearing! Contact the mayor and tell him what you think: contact form here.
