Battle over meaningless piece of paper

Having trouble understanding the controversy over this, considering that city council proclamations are meaningless:

CITY PROCLAMATION SPARKS L. RON HUBBUB

Meanwhile, other council members want to name a street after a dead racist:

Proposed Sonny Carson Ave. Could Prompt a Council Fight

It's great that the council focuses so much of their time on issues that affect the average New Yorker.

Proclamation = photo op for politician. Nothing more, nothing less.

I'm speechless. Totally agree - photo op for politician.

Ah, but a photo up for a politician followed by gushing article in the press read by the gullible public ... just look how much damage they did in SSG.

Yet another example in politics where perception trumps reality every time.
