"Every farmer, every laborer, every fisherman can both read and write — and we think that books instead of being locked up in cupboards, far from the sight of students, should be distributed as widely as possible. The books of our library are therefore
passed from hand to hand without returning to the library shelves perhaps for years."
I've enjoyed several books about how the states came to be, and some about states that didn't last or never were: Lost States ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11915385 ), and I got a kick out of the cartoon's take on things.

Haha, as a GIS analyst I love cartographic cartoons! Thanks for sharing!
I'd like to see what the graphic designers would do with Virginia's county map! Here in VA, some cities can decide to not be part of a county and be their own entity, or whatever it's called. So, when you look at a county map of VA, there are holes in the map!
Ah. I see. I don't think you have any significant panhandles in your geography, do you? So that would make sense. I suspect we learn the work in grade school (I've actually forgotten) when we're studying all the states and have to recognize them. Since both Florida and Oklahoma have really noticeable panhandles, I think we learn it then. Idaho doesn't count because everything would spill out of the pan. :)
