Graham proposes name for Girard Street Park: "Barack Hussein Obama"

I like it! Thanks to a commenter for pointing this out, councilmember Jim Graham has proposed renaming the 14th and Girard Street Park to Barack Hussein Obama Park. As I mentioned twice, 14th and Girard Street Park is a lame name, and I hope this gets changed.

I think it's silly to include his middle name - it is not how we know him. And it's not like the Bush presidents where you need to distingush between the two. I vote for simply Barack Obama park.

I read somewhere that he had the middle name "to show the diversity of the area." Then again, somebody on the CH list proposed just calling it "Diversity Park" -- I linked to the discussion in the newer post.
