Charleston vs. Charlotte
This ad at at a journalism job site shows how similar names of cities are easily confused. Here's the difference:
  • Charleston, S.C., is a coastal city known for its lovely architecture and Southern charm. The first shots of the Civil War were fired there.
  • Charlotte, N.C., is a landlocked city known as a center of banking and finance. It's where the Carolina Panthers play their home football games.

    Just another attempt by the Tar Heel state to appropriate your southern neighbor.

    Welcome to Blogger -- good blog and great to see you posting.

    People here up North also get North Carolina mixed up with South Carolina quite a lot. My suggestion is that they merge into one large state.

    Andy, I think your blog looks great! I've got it bookmarked and look forward to reading it often.

    As a Charlotte native with a ton of family in Charleston, I've run across what Charlotteans call "the CH problem" all my life.

    Merge? MERGE! Should New York and New Jersey just "merge"?

    Then what will happen when South Carolina secedes?
