Lawrence pinpointed as center of Google Earth

For those of you who ask, "Lawrence? Where the heck is that?" I have this answer:

Finally, there’s proof that Lawrence is the center of everything. Start up “Google Earth,” a free satellite photo mapping program available on the Internet, and you see a distant view of the planet. Use the zoom feature to magnify the planet, though, and you end up with a bird’s-eye view of Lawrence.

“A lot of people think that Kansas is in the middle of nowhere,” said Mayor Boog Highberger, who first heard about Lawrence’s Google distinction a month ago in an e-mail from Georgia. “I prefer to think that we’re in the middle of everywhere. And Google apparently agrees.” - Lawrence Journal-World
