In 2005, just before picking up my motor home from the factory in Montclair just to the East, my wife and I drove to a Camping World in San Bernardino to get supplies. It gets to look like desert fairly quickly further East.

On the way to Newfoundland this past summer we drove on I-84 near Newtown, CT. Ordinarily, it would have been just another small town name to be ignored, but no more.

Yep, it's terrible how names take on a different meaning after a tragic event.
