Thank you to Dave Blanchette, reporter for the State Journal-Register in Springfield, for interviewing me (and quoting me correctly!) for a story on the Route 66: Road Ahead project’s new contest for getting the group a new name and slogan. Their name really is a mouthful, so I wish them well on that. And double thanks to Dave for mentioning this blog with a link in the online version of the story — very kind indeed. There’s just one thing, and it’ll probably be corrected by the time you find that story: he mistakenly listed friend of this blog Keith Sculle, fellow IGS member, as one of my two co-authors for our Route 66 book in progress. Ouch: our co-author is none other than Keith Yearman, contributor to this blog and associate prof of geography at College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL. But I’m sure the teensy mistake will be rectified ASAP. We love both our Keiths. ;D
More posts soon!
Your road diva,
