Village Voice: New Stanton

I’ve had this post ready to for a while, just kept forgetting to post it.  Last weekend I was down passing through New Stanton (on 119 during the storm that went through, which was not fun, since apparently it was decided that 119 did not need any salt), which triggered lights in my brain to finally post this.

So, the truth is, I don’t know a whole lot about New Stanton.  I’ve driven through it many times (and by it even more times on the Turnpike).  The bit that I’ve seen encompasses a few restaurants and gas stations, but every time I go into the community itself, I am greeted by this sign:
New Stanton

Nothing too fancy, nothing too exciting, just a normal sign greeting you as you exit off the highway into New Stanton.

Now, there are tons of signs all over the Turnpike about how that area is a “High Merge Area” and has a disposition to have a great amount of truck traffic.

So I looked a little closer at the sign, and here is what I found:
Online Stores - New Stanton

So if I understand corretly, all the online stores, presumably of the internt, are located in New Stanton.  And since it is a heavy traffic area, that is why they always load so slowly!

Now that that mystery has been solved, it’s time to send in the horses to clear out all the lottery balls in the tubes…somehow that can be put into a metaphor for New Stanton, or possibly taken literally.  Your choice.
