Four months ago I tried to start a special series here at Brevity called "Where the Streets Have Fun Names." Basically, I provide a screen capture of an unusual Las Vegas neighborhood found in Google Maps. Despite finding quite a few, I never got around to writing the posts, and kinda forgot about it. Well, this is my first step toward improving that lousy track record.

1. Who thought this was a good idea, and how high were they?
2. To what decibel levels did the county authorities laugh?
3. How do you not get lost?
