How did they know, and stopped in traffic, there would have been dozens of witnesses behind them watching it happen. Nobody took a photo of it happening?

Which is now only I-93. The 128 designation was decomissioned east of Canton back in 1989. It's taken over thirty years, but the traffic reporters have finally realized this in their reports.

The Globe headline made it sound like the Great Train Robbery went down on 128. This stuff, "fell off the truck" hardly a heist!

and Bombay is now Mumbai. However Saint Petersburg became Petrograd, and then Leningrad, but now is Saint Petersburg again. Who knows what the future may bring?

was once New Amsterdam.

Why they changed it, I can't say -- people just liked it better that way.
