Ten random things: January 25

Ten special interest license plates available in the Commonwealth of Virginia:

  1. World War II Veteran
  2. Greyhound Adoption
  3. Georgia Tech
  4. Naval Reserve
  5. Chesapeake Bay
  6. Parrotheads
  7. Dabney S. Lancaster Community College
  8. Disabled Veteran
  9. Family/Children Fund - Heart
  10. Longwood University

I think it entirely unjust that Cornell College is not among the twenty out-of-state colleges for which special interest license plates are available here in Virginia. Granted, there probably aren't very many Cornell College alums here in Virginia, but I'll bet a higher percentage of them would get Cornell College plates than Northern Virginia Community College alums get NoVa plates. (I've lived in Northern Virginia for almost ten years, and I've never seen one in the wild.)

I think that some day in the future, Virginia will introduce entirely personalized plates. You'll be able to submit your own artwork or photograph for reproduction on a license plate, just like these guys do for personal checks. Given the huge number (approximately 180) of special interest plates available in Virginia, I'm a little surprised you can't do so now.
