Coincidence?

7MPLS3
Goodyear has developed a new airship for the first time since Minneapolis in '73 became the bid it is today.

It's a combination blimp-zeppelin with a maximum of speed of...you guessed it...73 mph.

Hey, they're even having a name the blimp contest with a day's exclusive use of the new airship to the winner! Deadline: April 4th. I suspect they're looking for something more universally recognizable than Zyx W. Vuts. Hmmm....

I dunno. It may be worth a shot

Given what they say about the judging criteria, anything that even sounds like a person's name rather than some inspirational platitude is probably out of the running.

Offer "Polaris". It sounds good and *we'll* know the North Star reference really means Minneapolis....

Oh, that's just awesome, even if we can't name it.

Glad to be of service! I literally never see or hear tell of an airship without thinking about that cartoon.

Is your first sentence missing the word "since"?

I agree, it's quite amusing!

Yes; that first paragraph was missing "since"...and it's since been corrected. Thanks!
