I used to live in New Mexico, and a lot of Americans (outside the Southwest) were amazed that I spoke English, and didn't need a passport to travel the U.S.

LOL, so where is the 'Old' England map???

The map was probably filed there by a customer, not by B&N, but it doesn't surprise me that a typical American customer of even a bookstore (where customers presumably are halfway literate or they wouldn't be there) is a geographical moron. I have encountered people who can't even find their own city that they live in on a map. Gah, the stupid, it burns, it burns!

I suspect that it wasn't put there by a customer. There were not any New England maps on the other side of the display. There were not any empty slots where the New England map should have been.
