MRC’s Dan Gainor might still be laughing at what he sent along: a New York Times story on how “New York State Is Set to Loosen Marijuana Laws” came with a map of which states allow “medical marijuana,” clustered in New England and the western states.

It came with a correction: “An earlier version of a map with this article reversed the locations of North and South Dakota.” How do you put South Dakota on top of North Dakota?

Those people in New York clearly see the Great Plains simply as Fly-over Country. But wouldn't they know northern states sit on top of southern states?

Or perhaps someone in New York is already testing “medical marijuana” in the Times graphics department?
