The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Inner-city blues

Miriam is deceived by Mapquest and winds up lost on the far side of Wilmington, something I've managed to do myself without computer assistance.

This aside in her last paragraph, though, will pin some people's How Dare You meters:

BTW, just asking, why isn't MLK Blvd ever in a really nifty part of town? I, personally, would not like Miriam St to be a place with boarded up businesses and decrepit houses, but that's just me.

I will say only that it's difficult to zone a parcel, or a neighborhood full of them, for maximum nift, and that the only road I know of named after me (which almost certainly isn't named after me) is actually in a really nifty part of some other town.

Well, Duane Rd in Warr Acres is right behind Incredible Pizza & has a Christy's Toy Box behind it. Also, it is misspelled.

On a side note, I grew up in a small town & lived on the corner of Elsie & McCowan. Elsie McCowan lived in the neighborhood & used to own all the land the neighborhood was now on. It was a nice way to remember her.
