SILVER LINING

The Abbey Road crossing has been repainted now that crowds of people aren't lining up to re-create the Beatles' iconic album cover

Now that they don't have to elbow their way through a crowd, we're waiting for a photo of the road crew recreating the scene.

Paul is dead.

Do the zig-zag white lines mean the highway painters had a pint too many on break or were they added simply for fun?

No, the stiping crew was not being playful. The zigzag lane lines seem to mark pedestrian crossings. I took a look at some London streets in Google Maps satellite view and found the zigzag lines wherever there was a painted pedestrian crossing at least in the general vicinity of Abbey Road.

I visited with a couple of people here in Flathead County who claim to remember being in London.

One says the zigzag white lines means to watch for drunk pedestrians.

The other says it means not to zag when you are supposed to zig. Or maybe walk like an Egyptian. He really wasn't certain which, because it is a puzzler.

Le Pet: No, that zig-zag is from the long and winding road.
