Fun With Maps

Remember when the Evil Empire doctored their maps so that certain sensitive information wouldn’t be available to enemies of the state?

Well, guess what, that’s exactly what your government is now doing with maps such as MapQuest that you use everyday. Only they appear to be much less efficient than the old Evil Empire.

The White House is still there, but has been camouflaged and is no longer white. The Capital and Cheney’s residence on the Naval Observatory grounds have disappeared into a sea of pixels.

Of course, an alert terrorist could just check in with the White House website here and get the address of 1 Observatory Circle. Or, perhaps you might want to check here, since the place has been there since 1893 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Read all about this latest nonsense here and here.
