John Galt Blvd.

I got an ad in the mail today from Omaha Steaks ("Special Invitation For a Select Few" . . . Million People), and noticed that their corporate headquarters is located on John Galt Blvd.  John Galt, of course, is a fictional character created by Ayn Rand, so it's pretty nifty that he has his own street in Omaha, Nebraska USA.  According to the Douglas County Historical Society, the street was named by a real estate developer whose favorite book was Atlas Shrugged.  I guess now you can enjoy some Randburgers as a result, and I can heartily endorse naming streets after fictional characters and other literary figures.

Perhaps someday someone will name a street after Funnybear.

It probably should be a street with a lot of bars on it.
