The great thing about America is that it’s completely apportioned out between the states and territories. You can’t be “near” one state without being in another.
Or so I thought. This missing Marine was spotted “near” Kansas, but not actually “in” Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, or Colorado.
In other news, I guess I’m reluctantly rooting for Kansas tonight. I don’t know. I hate most KU fans, I have major problems with the managing of the university, and I think most big college sports programs make a mockery of the “educational” nature of the college (including BYU sports and their casual relationship with the Honor Code).
