    In North Dakota, there is a Minot but no YOURnot, so logic concludes that the state of ND has acknowledged your existence. How very generous of them.

    Yeah! And there is a Cali-'for'-nia but not a Cali-'against'-nia. I just don't get it. Here in Texas we have city named 'New Braunfels' but there is no 'Braunfels' or even an 'Old Braunfels.' How can there be a new one if there was no old one or even one to begin with?? I'm tellin' ya'... I just don't get it.

    Zeeland is the westernmost province of the Netherlands. Dutch explorers discovered the New Zeeland group of islands in 1840. The Brits claimed it as colony in 1841. I lived for a short time in Zeeland, Michigan, which also takes it's name from the Netherlands.

    Texas has a New Deal, but no any other kind of Deal that I’m aware of.
