    Re: Thoughts on why 'north' is at the top of maps (BBC)

    More new age PC BS.

    Tell people living in New Zeland that south is bad and north, Guadacanal is better place to live.  Tell people the Recife, Brazill ( north ) is good and Rio DeJenero (south )is bad.   Ask people in Yellow Knife if south ( Vancouver ) is bad.

    Think cities - Ask if Harlemn is better to live in because it is north NYC or Broadway, or the lower east side ( south). Would you think north near Rikers Island or LaGrauda is better than south near Coney Island?

    I belive people are smarter than that.
