Geography Watch!: Can you find Louisiana on a map?

As a professional geographer, a mistake like this is a personal affront to my profession. I found this graphic on the Strib main page tonight. I didn't know Michael Brown had taken over the DC bureau!





This following hot on the heels of CNN's mistaken labeling of South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas . . .



[The CNN graphic, since removed . . . South Dakota is labeled as having a Dem caucus instead of Nebraska, Nebraska is labeled as having a GOP caucus instead of Kansas, and What's the matter with Kansas? h/t www.willbardwell.com/]


My point: now more than ever, we need geographers.
