Are you surprised that Lawrence is at the center of the Earth on Google Earth?

Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on December 21, 2005

“No, of course not. It seems like the perfect place to me.”

“Yes. I knew Kansas was at least in the middle of the U.S., but you would think it would be somewhere in central Kansas.”

“Yeah, it's very surprising and actually kind of funny. Why Lawrence? It just doesn't make any sense.”

“Yes. I've never heard that before. It makes me proud to live at the center of the Earth.”
