A LITTLE CLARIFICATION

Recently, my meandering brain was made aware of an inconsistency in Salt Lake's street nomenclature.  It was brought on by the fact that the GPS guy sounds kind of like he's saying "900th East, 3900 South," when we go past 900 East 3900 South.

I hadn't really thought about this before, but it occurred to me that if we say "9th East" to mean 900 East, then "900th East" means


90000 East

That is, somewhere in the Uinta Mountains, I think.  Food for thought.
