Timothy J. Cullen wonders what business the government has in dispensing with 666 as a road number:

Governmental wisdom – state and federal – has decreed that the "Devil’s Highway" will no longer bear the number of the beast. Taxpayers not consulted will bear the expense of this egregious and truly nonsensical change in designation. Based on what was reported in a Friday the Thirteenth (cross your fingers and face the wall!) story in the New York Times, one might conclude that superstition has won the day in the hallowed halls of government.

Of course it's always more interesting to focus on the superficial in religion than actually bother living it.
