Wisconsin Avenue, N.W., between Davis and Edmunds Streets

“Dear PoPville,

I just learned of the below hearing, which concerns renaming the portion of Wisconsin Ave in front of the Embassy after a Russian politician, Boris Nemtsov, who opposed Putin.The politician was assassinated on a bridge near the Kremlin. The DC Council is having a hearing 12/6/2017, details below. Seems rather unusual.”

WAMU reported:

“The idea was born earlier this year on Capitol Hill, where Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) introduced a bill to commemorate Nemtsov by making sure Russian diplomats coming in and out of the embassy couldn’t easily ignore his name. But after the bill stalled in the Senate, Rubio found a willing partner in Mary Cheh (D-Ward 3), who introduced her own bill in late October in the Council. It will get its first hearing next week.

“People are being assassinated simply because they are agitating for democracy,” said Cheh. “That’s wrong, and if this a small way of us saying that’s wrong, I’m happy to do it.”

This is the former El Salvadoran consulate. On the Glover Park listserv, suffice it say, the people are not pleased. Well, many of them. If I could add one point of positivity, if indeed positivity is a word because I’m getting that whack red line underneath it when I type, I digress, the butter dipping sauce really is quite tasty.
