BASIC MAP SKILLS

Hurricane Rita is now threatening the Gulf Coast as a Category 4 storm. Obviously this is not helpful for that region still trying to sort things out from Katrina. I won't ask what happened to L, M, N, O, P, and Q in the naming list, and how I missed that many storms. Instead, I'll note the following from a news report:

The storm is expected to remain a Category 4 storm until it makes landfall, meteorologist Chris Landsea of the National Hurricane Center in Miami said. That's now predicted for Saturday somewhere between northern Mexico and western Louisiana, most likely in Texas.

Somewhere between northern Mexico and western Louisiana? Well, yes. A quick glance at the map does seem to indicate that the area between northern Mexico and western Louisiana would, "most likely," be Texas. In fact, it'd be very hard pressed to be anywhere else.
