I know you’re probably sick of hearing about it, but I just read a brief yet interesting DMN piece about the effort to get Industrial Boulevard named after César Chávez.

As always, Monie brings some eloquent insight to the issue. He points out that renaming the street after Chávez really isn’t about a name at all:
"It really represents a challenge of what it means to be a community. To do that, we need to embrace an inclusive model. We’re a salad bowl of lots of different ethnic groups. We should recognize that."
