Heard: US Geography 101

Hearing my home state mentioned by three interns in the Library of Congress, I was stricken by their lack of geographic acumen.  One asked another, who was evidently from Kentucky, where Kentucky was; if it was near Oklahoma.  The other asked if it was closer to Tennessee.  


Congratulations, interns: one of you was able to name one of the seven states bordering Kentucky.

  1. "stricken"? making fun of others' perceived stupidity while inventing your own vocabulary for purposes of self-aggrandizement? classy.
