Off the road again.

What is wrong with this country when we can't get a stretch of Texas highway named after Willie Nelson without politicians becoming, well, political?

Our political world has become a game of "by finding fault with others I can make myself look good," no matter what stupidity or harm occurs as a result.

People are dumb. Politicians are worse. I'm gonna rename my driveway "Willie Nelson Court."

Unless Mrs. Popping Culture filibusters.

I'd prefer Johnny Cash Lane.

Isn't it generally considered poor form to name things after people while they're still alive?

Dean, the common thought is that after so much Jack Daniels, Willie is actually pickled and preserved... it's fruitless to wait for him to die.

...except, Mrs. Popping Culture, I can't help but recall the sophomoric joke that "Johnny Cash" refers to a pay toilet. "Pay Toilet Lane"... I don't think so.
