Do they have maps?

I’m sure you’ve seen or heard about the poor Miss Teen South Carolina who gave that breathtaking answer to a question from the pageant host, who asked why one-fifth of Americans can’t locate the U.S. on a map.  The young miss is a high school graduate who reportedly took AP (advanced placement) classes — and apparently passed those classes.  She’s enrolled at Appalachian State University for the fall semester.
