There are some absolutely beautiful drives in Mississippi, very scenic and very interesting. But do these highways and by-ways need special names? Lots of drives in the state have been re-named this or that, “blues highway” for example.
Senate bill SB2735 renames highway 67 in Soiuth Mississippi as the “Biloxi-d’Iberville Scenic Expressway”. The bill actually says:
AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 65-41-57, MISSISSIPPI CODE OF 1972, TO RENAME THE “HIGHWAY 67 SCENIC BYWAY” AS THE “BILOXI-D’IBERVILLE SCENIC EXPRESSWAY”; AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES.
How many have driven Highway 67? Then will someone tell me what the scenic part is? Nothing but pine trees and popcorn trees. with an occasional building of some sort, none of which would be considered an attraction. So what did the state accomplish by re-naming this highway?
NOTHING! This is just another waste of time by the legislature, kinda like the commending of half the state on some thing or the making of every other day as “National Whip-dicky Day”. These jerks spend more time patting someone on the back or re-naming something than they do on the actually necessary business of the state.
So the legislature wastes money and time on superficial horsesh!t and how much will the cost be to make new improved road signs, the installation and so forth.
When the state finally get a group of representatives that actually want to work foir the better of Mississippi? Probably never! This type of bill makes the rep look like he is voting for substand when in reality he is just increasing his count, because about 80% of a reps vote total is on absolutely worthless, mindless crap.
