Allston-Brighton City Councilor Jerry P. McDermott wants the Hub to fire back at Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for calling President Bush "the devil" at the United Nations on Wednesday. His modest proposal: removing Kenmore Square's famed Citgo sign, which is owned by Citgo Oil, a Venezuelan subsidiary.
"Given the hatred of the United States displayed by dictator Hugo Chavez, it would be more fitting to see an American flag when you drive through Kenmore Square," said McDermott, who yesterday filed a resolution with the city clerk to have the sign removed. "I think people would soon forget the Citgo sign."
