Local Trivia

Just how geeky is Sacramento?  Well, did you know about the existence of Klingon Court and Romulan Court, two intersecting residential cul-de-sacs in Sacramento, in the 95823 zip code, near the Florin mall?  That intersection would be a Trekkie's dream address, eh?   To see where it is, try this link, and zoom in a tad:  http://www.mapquest .com/mq/1- wKk5 .  To go with the theme, the nearby streets are Galaxy Pkwy, Altair Pkwy, Uranus Pkwy, and Ursa Pkwy!
