Roadside Sign

We have a lot of roadside signs in Montana. There are the roadside memorial crosses, the standard "Seniors '10" on overpasses, and often adopt-a-highway signs. This one was edited.

Do people throw more trash along a stretch of highway in which the atheists have adopted; or do they want to keep their Christian trash off of that highway?

Occasionally the local Ku Klux Klan adopts a highway. Does that affect littering?

High School Nicknames

High school students are not always the most sensitive, p.c. type of individuals like the schools and churches exhort us to be.  Maybe it's just being obstinate, but that sort of thing does happen.

For instance, there were two Heidis in my high school class.  One was nicknamed Heidi of the Alps, apparently in homage to the Johanna Spyri character.  The other was nicknamed Heidi of the Foothills.

Tennessee kids need to have a sense of humour.  Can I now be known as Heidi of the Bitterroots?

Not even the University of California or the University of Miami can claim this distinction.
