Another Chance For Chavez Fans

The North Texas Tollway Authority wants to rename State Highway 121, and it’s asking for public input on the matter. Someone suggested naming the road after the legendary congressman Sam Rayburn, who hailed from Bonham, but that makes too much sense. Cesar Chavez must have passed through that area at one time or another. Or at least, thought thoughtfully about labor conditions in the area. Start flooding those inboxes!

    Why don’t we sell naming rights, like for stadiums and stuff?

  5. I’m just glad somebody else gets to vote on it this time.

    How about State Highway 121? That just might be crazy enough to work.

    It does make too much sense to name it after Rayburn. He served in the House for forty-eight years, over twenty as Speaker. When he died, he had $15,000. He never accepted gifts or money from lobbyists. I wonder how many serving today have the same integrity?
    Damn, we could use some statesmen like him today! Maybe in oh, say Illinois???

  14. How about the “None of the Cameras in the Cash Lanes of the Dallas North Tollway Work Express Parkway.”

    The Road to Nowhere?

  18. Obama's Seat says:

    Why not just create road signs like the LED message-changing billboards?

    All streets would have basic numbers for postal service, but the name could change weekly to satisfy the identity-group du jour.

    The Pete Sessions Taliban Turnpike or The John Cornyn No-Show Highway
