Another fine story from the BBC.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-40638673

It is 250 years since America's Mason-Dixon Line was completed. Hailed as a groundbreaking technical achievement, it came to symbolise the border between the Civil War North and South, separating free Pennsylvania from slave-owning Maryland. But who were the two British men who created it?

LOL! Who let them?
Surely by this time it was not a French problem. At least not here.

After checking, I confirm it was not a French problem. At least not here.

Well I'm sure it will have to be removed for offending someone.

I hope not. What a difference a hundred years, less or more, make?
All with a guillotine in between?

Rico21 just confirmed it?

Best advice. Don't give into the mob, of any variety?
