Where the wind comes sweeping down the plain
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain

-From the song Oklahoma by Rodgers and Hammerstein

This is a screenshot from the August 7th 2013 episode of ABC News. As you can see someone did not study a map of the USA before labeling the states on this slide. I also wonder about our educational system as any American child over the age of twelve should be able to distinguish one state from another.  Although, I must admit I probably could no longer  label all the Midwestern states correctly anymore, they were my bugaboo in school, but I do remember being told to check my work before turning it in.
