Via a Kwame Brown press release, confirmation that today the DC city council gave preliminary approval to the plan to rename the portion of South Capitol Street that runs alongside Nationals Park as "Taxation Without Representation Street." The bill includes the requirement that buildings along that stretch of South Capitol officially be given the address "Taxation Without Representation Street," which will no doubt leave the Nationals tickled pink.
Kwame's press release also says that "the location was chosen not only because of the baseball stadium but also because it is on a direct route to Congress."
For more details, read my coverage of the hearing on the bill, as well as the bill itself. There still needs to be a second vote on the bill before it can become law.
No word on when the tea dumping starts....

Taxation w/o rep? Then how is this? Pretty if you ask me. Can't wait to move to DC!

The 110th Congress has been one of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton's most productive legislative sessions, with 37% of the 55 bills she introduced becoming law, signed by the President. She also saw 13 of her bills pass or have a hearing in the House, with most likely to become law in the next Congress. This rate for signing into law, as well as of House passage of a member's bills is very rare and helps explain why Norton is ranked 19th 'most influential' and 16th in 'legislative power' among the 440 members of the House by an outside organization, Power Rankings . Among the bills that passed the House was the D.C. Voting Rights Act, which fell three votes short of 60 required by the Senate.

These were some other suggestions by a *Mike M.* on another DC site:


May I suggest "Murders Row" "Out of Wedlock Way" "The Boulevard of Broken Tax Office" "Malfunction Junction" "Marion's Merry Crack in the Sidewalk Avenue."

The tea dumping HAS TO BE when the Red Sox come to town, please pass the word (1 if by land...)

I posted your "12/2/08, 4:35 PM" (credit given) to the Nats Chat Room and asked that EVERYONE bring their least favorite tea to the river on June 23 - 25...

Posted the same to the RedSox chat site for a little more fan participation.

Any chance of renaming a stretch of the river?
