The Russian Embassy in Washington has a new address, at least symbolically.The move to rename the street started in the U.S. Congress at the urging of Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and others.Such politicized street-naming games are not new to Washington.More recently, some Russian politicians have suggested retaliating for the Nemtsov change by re-naming a street outside the U.S. Embassy in Moscow "North American Dead End".When the original street-renaming bill stalled in the Senate, Rubio turned to the D.C. Council for help.Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, the nonvoting representative of Washington in Congress, noted with satisfaction that the city council was able to quickly accomplish what the Senate couldn't.
