If maps are really not your thing, well, that's OK.  But if you are a map maniac like me, have I got a treat for you!  I was putzing around, when I discovered that I can select the location map in any place  with a click!  This time there's Cambridge MA, Los Angeles CA, New York City NY, Aceh Banda, Indonesia, and Topeka KS.  All you have to do is select anything that comes after "Location".  Enjoy!

Stephanie Mott of Topeka could become first transgender member of the Kansas Legislature
