Saturday Morning Video, Take 2: The West Wing was ahead of its time…

This NPR story (first discovered by my co-worker, because I was in a meeting–thanks, Awesome One! I owe you–and ha! I knew I’d draw you over to the dark side–aka National Public Radio–eventually) immediately reminded me of one of my all-time favorite scenes from The West Wing

…and that was before I realized that they both talk about THE SAME MAP PROJECTION.ย How. Cool. Is. That?

(And BTW, where was this clip when I was trying to explain map projections and distortion to sixth graders for years and years? Not online yet, gosh darn it.)
