LostUP: Blasts from the past

Lost on the U.P., Part 4 — A quick post tonight as I fondly reminisce about posts past detailing the missing or misaligned Upper Peninsula.

Back in June 2005, I noted the Visited States Web site which omitted the Keweenaw Peninsula (the thumb of the U.P.).

They still haven’t fixed their mapmaking program.

In an October 2004 broadcast of CBC’s The National, host Peter Mansbridge notes the crew painting the 50 U.S. states onto the Rockerfeller Square ice rink initially omitted the upper portion of the Lower Peninsula and had to repaint it.

I don’t know where that post went although I knew I wrote it. Oh well. It’s back know.
