Norm Alston, a regular contributor to the fun and games here at Back Talk, called the proposed Trinity River toll road the Belo Parkway in a comment the other day (his is the second comment). I am officially stealing his suggestion, and will now call it that whenever I write about it.

The name, of course, honors the company that owns Dallas’ Only Daily Newspaper, which is pushing to get the toll road built, come hell or high water. (Pun fully intended.)

Thanks, Norm.
