Ten random things: October 23

Ten street names from that new subdivision where all the streets are named after murderous despots:

  1. Stalin Road
  2. Hussein Circle
  3. Pinochet Drive
  4. Milosevic Square
  5. Mugabe Crescent
  6. Khatami Way
  7. Mussolini Boulevard
  8. Pol Pot Avenue
  9. Amin Court
  10. Hitler Street

There really is an Amin Court here in Loudoun County. It is not, to my knowledge, named for Idi Amin Dada, but regardless, I don't see how anyone could see that street name and not think of the former Ugandan president.

The other nine are, to my knowledge, made up.
