At first glance, the i in Squaire looked like a misspelling. But then I noticed the term New Work City, also a play on words, I’d suppose.

The airport is dotted all over with these signs making it a real linguistic eyesore. But I am sure we all will get used to it.

This would move me from Capricorn to Sagittarius, but only if I believed in it. On most days, I don’t.
