    I guess the press release person isn’t all the familiar with our town. You know, the town where Vermont intersects with Vermont, and 26th St. intersects with 26th Rd., and there are many different segments of any given street. 22nd St. N. could be a lot of places.

    I hope what they’re talking about is 22nd St. N in the vicinity of HB Woodlawn School. That spot is (was?) a near certain dropped call. If that’s what they’re talking about, then, “YIPPEE!”

      22nd st. N basically runs the width of the county in about 5 different segments. hopefully it is near HB Woodlawn/Lee Heights shopping center – Verizon’s coverage on Lee between glebe and quincy has always been horrible.

    Well, that explains Moran’s quotes last week supporting airport body scans.
