I never weighed in on the whole Squaw Peak controversy as it was unfolding because I didn’t have the time to prepare a thoughtful, well-reasoned response.
I still don’t have time, so don’t expect anything now. I just want to go on record as saying that the renaming of the Squaw Peak Parkway as the Piestewa Peak Parkway will never capture the public mind and that I propose that we call it the Triple-P for convenience—spread the word. If it catches on, you read it here first.
In related news, I just noticed that the new SR-51–L101 interchange completion date has been moved up to June 2003. My quality of life will improve significantly with this glorious event.
