I have got a mad on. A legitimate bitch. I have hundreds of dollars
invested in the Discoverer Series Ordinance Survey Maps. Map 6 of the
Ordinance Survey of Ireland, Donegal, doesn't go far enough east and Map 7 of
the Ordinance Survey of Northern Ireland, Londonderry, doesn't go far enough
west. I want 6 1/2!
The cartographers need to take a lesson from the politicians and learn to
Or do Ulster politicians not straddle? I want bowlegged politicians.
Where is the Ulster Historical Society? We need maps on historical
principals that would show this Lagan area on one 17th century map
irrespective of the current political boundaries. The Republic map is worst
of all. It has the boundary up the middle of the Foyle and then when the
boundary cuts to the north, everything east of the line looks like it's
fallen off the flat earth. Is it asking too much to see Raphoe and
Londonderry on one 1:50.000 map? I guess so.
I got research to do. I want to pound my fist on someone's desk. Where is
Rob Davidson when you need him?
