I have two suggestions to all change-happy municipal politicians:
1. Do NOT change the names of streets. Ever. Period. Once you've chosen a name, consider yourself stuck with it. Memorize this mnemonic: IOMMS (It's On My Map, Stupid).
2. When naming a street after someone, use the person's last name only.
I had to throw in the second, unrelated rule, because here in Waterloo we have recently been saddled with street names like "Father David Bauer Drive" and "Wes Graham Way", which befuddle the post office as well as the populace.
