Football showdown brouhaha

St. Custards hav begun another term, and what with Language Czarina's first class starting amid the "initial post-peak period," we decided to take the surface route* into town. This means a different sort of Morning Language Festival from the usual, including:
  • My favorite ambiguous church, St. John the Baptist Catholic
  • The strangest sign I've seen yet at a cemetery gate: "Now Open Sundays 11-4!"
  •  A wonderful noun phrase from the intersection of Sports and Politics: "The Ohio State-Michigan end-of-the-season football showdown brouhaha." The brouhaha, if you don't keep up with these things, has arisen because the OSU-Michigan football showdown could under some circumstances no longer be end-of-the-season, and some factions in the Ohio legislature don't like that.
May your semester be off to a good start too, wherever it might take you.

* The natives have so many words for "traffic"!

My favourite ambiguous church will always be St. James-Bond.

Surely you recall the cemetery just east of Hillsborough: Palmer's Grove Baptist Church Cemetery and Ball Field.
