In Albuquerque, city planners drew a straight line on a map and said, "This street is named Morningside." It's actually five different streets that don't connect. But it looks good on the map.

In Queens, the city planners drew an extension from 60th in NYC and said, "This is 60th." Since there were actually a bunch of streets under the line, and they weren't in a square grid, city planners named them 60th Street, 60th Road, and so forth.

Those planners must have moved south to Atlanta were it seems a third of roads are "Peachtree something."

I can only guess that it was a reference to the controversy over her casting in the movie "Aloha". If that isn't it, I don't get it either.

Probably - although he only listed 2 Chinese actresses, when in the movie she was playing a half-Chinese half-Hawaiian women.

Still can't believe that casting decision was approved and they didn't expect any backlash.

Thank God for Google Maps!
I love the way city planners did Anchorage Alaska streets. Streets run north/south, avenues run east/west. Everything is in numerical and alphabetical order.
