The local community board has a longstanding moratorium against renaming streets.
The councilman who represents the area said he opposed the petition.
And Corey Johnson, the City Council speaker and a progressive Democrat who can muscle through legislation he favors, said he opposed the renaming, too.
Mr. Johnson, who effectively determines whether the renaming will happen, said in a statement, “As much as I love the idea of celebrating President Obama, I am not positive this is the best way.”
elsewhere here i've mentioned that while rightist mass killings are quite bad enough, there is also the endless drumbeat of violent speech by rightwingers directed at "the left", which includes the completely anodyne capitalists of the center of the democratic party. this is just one example.

Trump Announces He Was Born Of A Virgin And Will Bring Balance To The Force
In a press conference Wednesday, President Trump announced he was born of a virgin and is the chosen one who will bring balance to the Force.
According to Trump, he was conceived by the Force and has "the highest midi-chlorian count of anyone, maybe ever."
"I'm the chosen one," he said. "All the very best people say that. I ask them to stop saying it so it won't go to my head, but they keep saying it. They insist."
this one isn't parody
but her emails!
She's 71. How long does he think a menopause lasts?
As long as it suits him to, I would expect.
How big a set of moobs does he want? (Nobody mention hormone use in cattle) Other resaurants are available.
Genuinely curious as to how he found the weekend, Basque food has quite the reputation.
TBF, to cunts like him, menopause is something that happens to other people. His involvement is limited to using it as a catch-all excuse to denigrate them.
Wooden Donald Trump statue built in Melania’s home country of Slovenia
I'm surprised that he wasn't depicted wearing the uniform of the Ustaše.
I literally cannot imagine what will happen to that.
I was going to suggest burning it until I saw a photo of it - I don't think this was built by Trump fans.
Ha ha ha.
Surely two short planks would be the most suitable wooden representation?

I'm actually starting to think it could slide in that direction. In the wake of the whole Cambridge Analytica weaponised personal data stuff, how long before enough US voters are persuaded that stuff like the above actually makes sense?
In a way its already happening. At my alma mater, they're phasing out liberal arts degrees in a number of areas. They stopped offering a well-respected museum studies program in favor of golf management. In a couple of years they're ending their doctoral programs in a number of liberal arts subjects and replacing them with degrees you might have previously found at technical colleges. This plan came directly from the governor's office.
Yeah, in a way that's happening here too and has been for some time - arts funding is vanishing and degrees sem to be almost entirely vocational, IYSWIM
But fucking golf management. Christ.
it does sound weird, but in some places it's a big industry, good weather areas like the south. so i can see having a golf management program. but i cannot see cutting a museum program.
