LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to replace the term “South-Central Los Angeles” with “South Los Angeles” on city documents and signs, a move supporters said would help erase a stigma that has dogged that part of the city.
…”With a name change and a new attitude of the people, maybe when the government decides to bring jobs in, they will bring them to our neighborhood, instead of ignoring us,” said resident Carol Black, who attended the council meeting.
If changing the name changes the attitude then why don’t they just rename it to “Rich and entrepreneureal” Los Angeles. Any kids with behaviour problems we could rename them to Well Adjusted Happy Person, if they are failing in school just rename them to Einstein (well maybe not Einstein since he was considered a slow learner and dropped out). We could clean out our prisons by renaming the prisoners to “Law abiding citizen.” Rename Death Valley to the Garden of Eden and the land would be instantly reformed and people would move there by the thousands. Well I have to go now and see the judge to have my name legally changed to “Saintly handsome thin billionaire genius with more hits than the Drudge Report.”
