The Pen: mightier than the sword since the 1800s(copy/paste)

some might be thinking the yellow i chose sucks, some of you may be wondering why this school's name is Penmen...this school is real if you're wondering, and i found the logo i used while checking out that list of team names.  just now i found two wordmarks, so i'll release versions with said marks sometime in february.  anyways, style is one i'd used a while back and modified, and the font should be familiar to anyone who frequents EB, Gamestop and the like: it's the PS2 font.

I actually work in downtown Boston.  I need to leave work at 4 to get up there for a 5:30 class, but I usually show up at just about 5.  I take my night classes at the Salem,NH campus which on a day with no traffic is about a 30 minute drive.  Every one else always has the same reaction, but it's really not that bad.

I know, I used to go to UMass Lowell. Freaking hellish commute, especially with the construction that will end in the year 2025.

2025? Why will it take so long?

NJ Tank, you have to understand how things (don't) get done in Massachusetts. The Big Dig, the largest construction project in US History, was supposed to have been finished by now, actually at least one year ago. The actual completion date I believe is next year. Mass. is notorious for cost overruns that put plans behind budget.

But there has been one exception: Route 3, a stretch of highway 15 miles north of Boston that goes 21 miles to the NH border. This project for the most part has been ahead of schedule. All the land clearing (21 miles worth, to add 1-2 lanes in each direction) was done in about 8 months. The rest of the time has been demolition and bridge construction.

Lowell, where I live, is right off Route 3. Lowell is divided in half by the Merrimack River. There are 6 bridges in town to cross that river...one was built in 1980 as a temporary bridge, another is constantly under construction, another has just been closed for 4 years to rebuild, and one other becomes one way during rush hour. The bridges in use are seriously undersized for the traffic they take on, due to the fact people avoid Route 3 because of traffic tie-ups. So all this congestion added to few choices to cross the river to go North in the evening (or South in the morning) make a frightfully painful commute. Residents complain there's no businesses in downtown Lowell, no where to go, but it's because people try to avoid Lowell due to the traffic problems.

And that concludes our geography and socio-economic lesson for today. Any questions? Bueller? Anyone?

Sorry, I didn't mean it litterally.  It's just that all the construction going on in the area is driving me (and the rest of Greater Boston) insane.

Sorry Discrim for taking this off-topic.  Discrim, I like the jerseys, very Discrimistyle.  I don't however like the blue pants.  I wish I could show you the wordmark, they don't have it on the website. It's actually really nice.  It would look great on these unis.
