14, 15, Reagan, 17

I'm getting awfully tired of Congressmen who don't seem to have cities of their own to screw around with.
A Republican congressman from South Texas has proposed renaming 16th Street NW [in Washington, DC] as Ronald Reagan Boulevard.

Rep. Henry Bonilla, co-chairman of the 2000 and 2004 Republican national conventions, quietly introduced the 106-word resolution before Congress adjourned for summer recess July 28.

Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.), chairman of the House Government Reform Committee with jurisdiction over Bonilla's legislation, [...] noted that Congress has renamed Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and dedicated the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center on Pennsylvania Avenue NW. "If Congressman Bonilla wants to name anything else, he has to look at his own district in San Antonio," Davis said.

Indeed. And since turnabout's fair play, Congressman Bonilla, allow me to offer a suggestion: tourists to fair San Antonio might really enjoy a nighttime stroll down The Marion Barry Memorial Riverwalk.
