Sometime earlier today, someone named “Sho Lo” launched a MoveOn.org petition to rename Shockoe Bottom:

I have been personally affected by the name Shockoe Bottom all my life. It’s so sexually charged and hard to pronounce. Say it a few times really fast. See what I mean? So sexual. So difficult. It’s time to change this. Are you with me, Richmond?!
