I knew it was not just me!

Hah! My sense of direction may suck, but here it is, independent verification that DC is the second least navigable city in America!
So there will be no more making fun of my ability to get monumentally lost.
Okay, well, maybe just a little.

    DC was initially designed that way so that we could defend it more easily against invading armies.

    Yeah yeah yeah, confuse invading armies. And people who live here.
    Job well done.

    “Job well done” is exactly what they said on the radio this morning in response to that trivia.

    The streets certainly didn’t confuse the British in 1812. Where did that trivia originate? As far as I have read Pierre L’Enfant was inspired by the steet layouts of Paris to try and make the cities sister capitals of world democracy. And what invasions were the original designers planning against? There were no enemies when the groundwork for DC was laid.

    I don’t agree with some of the listings. I don’t see how Norfolk/Tidewater is in a No.10 and I don’t see Philly anywhere. Has anyone driven in Philly? Easily worse than S.E. VA IMHO.
    Boston’s no surprise. I wonder why they even bother putting lines on the roads up there.
