"Syria ... Virginia?"

It has recently been brought to my attention that some folks thought I was talking about cities in the United States when I referred to Syria, Damascus, etc ... Honest mistake given that these are in fact not too far from some of the places I grew up ... Here is a short list of these (ironically) American cities that confused some of you >>

Damascus, Virginia

Damascus, Maryland

Syria, Virginia

Lebanon, Virginia

Jerusalem, Virginia

Alleppo, Pennsylvania

Palestine, Texas

Let me set the record straight (like The Street Called ... ) :

I meant SYRIA - the nation/region in Southwest Asia bordering Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, & occupied Palestine ... the capital of which is of course the great city of DAMASCUS, one of the longest continuously-inhabited cities on planet earth ... so nice, they named it once ...

  1. "...from the city so nice, they named it twice. to the city so nice, they only named it once." NY,NY to Damascus, that is.
