That has been my question!

She was interviewed on one of the Morning shows yesterday. It sounds like she was in honors classes and is headed to college.

I saw her on the Today Show and thought she was very sweet and self-deprecating-and humble. The most intelligent person, when placed in certain pressured situations, can have those problems. Including all of us.

i agree.

i admit, i laughed too, and it was so nonsensical -- you couldn't write that.

but i feel badly for her. she was a pagent contestant, she knew she was on TV, she knows she runs the risk of embarassment. so she's not a total victim.

but, still, poor thing.

nah.... she's going to be way more (in)famous than the winner. She can turn this into a career.

Perhaps part, and I do mean part of the blame is traditionally, over the years, a lot of weather maps via tv in the US have looked like this -



It could be difficult for some if their only relation to the US on a map is an example like the above. As Canada has access to national US networks. as well as local affiliates in border States we know this problem all to well. I constantly shake my head at the telly thinking that Canada and Mexico look like dark, blurry places that have no people and where temperature doesn't exist.

Recently however we're starting to see more maps that will show TO, Mont, or Van. We're finally thawing out from the ice age!

I found a very interesting 2006 National Geographic poll for US 18-24 year olds on geography. Interesting because the 1 in 5 stats are wrong.

Pdf download for the NG - Roper Public Affairs, 2006 Geographic Literacy Study http://www.nationalgeographic.com/ro...gLitsurvey.pdf

National Geographic Test Yourself quiz - http://www.nationalgeographic.com/roper2006/index.html

check out the quiz...it's pretty easy but interesting nevertheless.

I wanna know what the hell these 1 out of 5 so called American's problem is that they can't even find their own damn country on a map. How stupid do you have to be? Or are they polling pre-schoolers???? How increadibly stupid does a teacher have to be to NOT teach students things like that???

I'd think in today's day and age.....every American not only would know where their own country is, but also know where Iraq and Afganastan are too.

Another good question to ask is where that statistic is from.

I understand stage fright and all but I still think Miss SC's answer left much to be desired. I mean it's not THAT hard of a question.

I'll have to try and find the Today show clip.
