Time to Rename Airport Boulevard

RECEIVED Tue., April 12, 2005

Dear Editor,
    Isn't it about time we changed the name of Airport Boulevard? The name doesn't make sense any more – in fact it is a little confusing when you are driving to ABIA and you see a sign directing you to "Airport" that actually takes you away from the new airport. I would love to see Airport Boulevard renamed something appropriate. Barbara Jordan Boulevard sounds nice. Robert Mueller Boulevard would be OK. Do we have an Elisabet Ney Street? Or an O. Henry Boulevard? There are so many people who have shaped this city and this state who are not appropriately honored. Consider Jacob Fontaine, Jacob Harrell, Anson Jones, Jane McCallum, Roy Velasquez, or James Wheat.
