Should We Rename Garland Road? That’s the question (paywall) being floated by Lincoln Property, the folks redeveloping the 15-acre spot at Garland and Gaston. Lincoln claims that some people get confused and think the road is in Garland. A company rep downplays the whole thing but says, oh, maybe Arboretum Boulevard would be a good option. I look forward to the point at which this discussion becomes racially charged and the movement gains strength to rename it Julio Iglesias Street. (Bonus: the story I linked to was written by James Ragland. Remember him?)
