Navigating Florida -- The Charlotte Sun Way

One assumes Charlotte Sun's newsroom is equipped with an atlas and it has a page or two devoted to Florida. That good book may even be somewhere near the copy desk, where those fact-driven, accuracy fiends called copy editors regularly thumb the pages to check on stuff, like where Pensacola is.

Oh? You say that page was ripped out years ago, and now the best you can do is guess where Pensacola is? Well, then, no free beer for us, because the Charlotte Sun map man points us 250 miles east of where that fair city was last reckoned.


  1. This is the kind of work you expect at a drive-thru when they forget to give you a straw for your pop, even though you asked for one.
    Damn, even the greeters at Walmart can direct you to an item in their store.

  2. Sorry, OWW. There's no atlas in the Sun newsroom. I just checked.
