MIKE WATSON; C/AC not left out of geographic irresponsibility
Watson cites another source of map-making crime, even on printed maps, of calling Pettit's Fork as known since pre-countyhood, Petty's Fork.
Mike Watson writes:
There is something to be said for the lack of accuracy of mapping in Adair County, and abroad, and Billy Joe has discovered that Columbia and the home country has not been left out of that geographic irresponsibility. Not a new phenomenon, but maps of all sorts certainly should be more accurate today than when our only reference points were "foot-to-the-sod" investigation by walking (or driving), or consulting printed maps.Comments re article 69094 Billy Joe Fudge I now know how Columbus must have felt
