Russia’s invasion of Georgia has been hitting the news, but not getting an awful lot of attention.
Much of the attention is has received has been the result of some Americans apparently not realizing that Georgia is a country that happens to share its name with a US state, leading to a handful of people expecting to see tanks in Atlanta [warning: big 1920x1200 PNG image]. (Though I suspect that question may have been in jest, but it really isn’t out of line for Yahoo’s questions site.)
Oh, and there’s the occasional map mixup.
BTW, Georgia (country)’s location reminds me of an old pet peeve: Europe and Asia are the same freakin’ continent.
