Lost on the U.P.: Guess I was wrong

Well, folks. I’m pulling the plug on my nascent project to document examples of people excluding the Upper Peninsula of Michigan from their maps. I’ve been told I’m wrong and I now heartedly admit the error of my ways.

Steven Colbert, of “The Colbert Report,” took a phone call from a Mustard County, Mich. resident last Monday. The resident pointed out that the show’s map of every congressional district omitted the U.P. (which is part of Michigan’s 1st). Colbert denied the allegation and told the caller that if it isn’t on his map, those people live in Canada.

Thanks for straightening that up, Steven.
