Tuesday/ the ‘Free State of Bottleneck’

Here’s a cute story that ran HC-GU038_Coat_o_G_20151113150019in Monday’s edition of the Wall Street Journal, of a slice of country in Germany that was an accident of careless map drawing after World War I. I love maps, and to boot, I was born in the Free State province of South Africa. (It used to be called the Orange Free State, after the Orange River. After 1994, it was simply renamed to the Free State province).

Here is the link to the WSJ story.
