Driving the "Prisoner of War, Missing in Action" Highway in PA

Nice sentiment, bad name. I'd prefer to name it for a single POW/MIA or the Unknown Soldier Highay, POW highway would work too, but not "Missing in Action Highway"

Also, Burger King has announced the "FryPod," a french fry container designed for your car's drink holder. [It gave me a laugh]

Just passed Dr Maulfair's, another unfortunate name
