Okay, I’ll give these chuckleheads props for being creative, at least. And amusing.
Don’t have a whole lotta love for Robert E. Lee Road? There’s now a movement to give the street’s name to another Robert.
A group calling itself “Keep Austin Weird. Not Racist.” released a “peaceful video-proposal” Wednesday to rename the South Austin street for Led Zeppelin frontman and former Austin resident Robert Plant.
lant, the video proposal says, embodies Austin’s values better than Lee.
“Robert E. Lee Road is not what represents us,” the group behind the video said in a news release. “If anything, we’re more like Robert Plant Road. Aren’t we the ‘Live Music Capital of the World,’ after all? Plus, the dude actually lived here.”
Y’know, I ain’t the biggest Zep fan in the world. But I could live with this, I think.
