Apparently the board of supervisors thinks that the poor residents of Loudoun are just too confused by streets’ changing names.

So they want to initiate a study. Good idea. A study on why roads have different names.

Lori Waters reads my mind:

“Who will pay the cost to change documents?” Waters asked during the board meeting, saying she would be willing to have a committee study the topic, but she did not want staff to get “bogged down with this.”

Meanwhile “Red Rum Dr.” has Mr. Snow waking up at night in a cold sweat thinking about Jack Nicholson coming up his stairs.

Update: Just noticed Bacon’s Rebellion has also posted on this heart-wrenching and thought-provoking issue.

  • Maybe it’s just because I can read a map, but this strikes me as a non-issue. Off the top of my head, I can’t recall if there are street signs at the intersections where the roads changes names, but that may be a much cheaper alternative than changing names.

  • Adelphia Cable used to be located on Red Rum Dr. I always thought it was like an inside joke for movie watchers. But I’ve seen that it’s part of an industrial park, so I guess not.

    In any case, I am horrible at finding my way around, and the name changes don’t help. Even still, I agree with Dave that this is a non-issue.
