Signs of the Apocolypse: I-35 is Road to Salvation, say some Christians

I was literally shocked to see this story today on the front page of my newspaper. Although the Des Moines Register is a terrible newspaper, and now that the politico's have left apparently there is truly nothing important going on. Just more people seeking meaning in the meaningless.

Believers say the highway is straight out of scripture; others call the interpretation skewed, even absurd.

For many drivers it's an efficient route to the cabin up north or the Iowa homestead down south, but for a number of Christians across denominations, Interstate 35 is a holy stretch of asphalt leading not to the site of Buddy Holly's last gig, but to divine salvation.

Some believe I-35 might be shorthand that links the interstate to Isaiah 35:8 of the Bible: "And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Holy Way; the unclean shall not pass over it, and fools shall not err therein."
