Anyone who knows me halfway well knows I love geography and I love maps. This article is for people who join me in that interest. We’re going to look at maps of the United States. Ready to argue about them?
One of my favorite questions upon meeting a new person…
At this writing, Joe Biden is not yet the president-elect. In the early hours of Saturday, 7 Nov. 2020, he and the rest of the world wait for votes to be counted in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada. It is Day Five of our Election Week.
