    Why not just call it the ‘non binary’ neighbourhood? Nothing has meaning, everything is ignored and crime is acceptable.

  2. Common Sense says:

    I think the new name should NOT reflect a person. 10 years from now somebody will dig up some dirt on a human and everyone will panic and demand the name be changed.

    and where is the evidence of this claim?? oh wait, he was white so he is automatically a member. these people are l u n a t i c s! The constant barrage of schorched earth policy will continue for 4 1/2 more years of our president.
