Call me crotchety, but am I the only one who's annoyed by the name
"University Pointe" for the new office-retail development on Sixth St.?
So far as I can see, this has nothing to do with the university, except
proximity. And there's no mountain or peninsula nearby that might be
called a point. Does this name MEAN anything?
And that cutesy little "e" on the end! Are we pretending we're in Merrie
Olde Englande? I would think the Latah County Grain Growers might prefer
something more local and plain spoken.
I agree Moscow could use more high-end office space, but I'd be embarrassed
to have "University Pointe" on my business card.
