So is it, as David Bruce Murray wonders, Austins Bridge (no possessive on that first word) or Austin’s Bridge? I initially thought the former, judging by the group’s website. But then in certain advertisements for the group (including the big World Vision* spread in this month’s SN), it’s Austin’s Bridge. Any authoritative, as opposed to purely speculative, answers out there? And if it’s Austins Bridge, what on earth does that mean?

    I am pretty sure the Austin’s Bridge spread in the June SN is a World Vision ad not Compassion. Not a crucial fact but I just thought I would point it out.

    Speaking of which, or whom, has anyone been to the bridge in Austin? At dusk, literally millions of bats coming flying out from under the bridge. It is quite a site.

    Wierd name. Period. Especially with Austin Bridges out there somewhere…you’d think there’d be copyright issues.

    There would be copyright issues, but since the rest of the world doesn’t pay attention to sg, no one will catch it.

    Actually, in the case of a group name, you’d be talking about trademark issues rather than copyright.
