And it goes east

Am I.  The only one  who sees the irony in defending Bobby Lee by defining 
the course of the  Susquehanna?

>>It wasn't bad. We are sitting in July on the banks of the  Red River 
(obviously not the Texas/Oklahoma one) watching the folks swim on  the Minnesota 
side. At that point, the Red River flows south to north as it is  in the 
Hudson Bay watershed (as are the Tetons). It turned out to be a  pleasant 
afternoon. The point is that the locals (as all of we locals are want  when out 
of towners are around) were more than happy to talk about the  locale.

south to north river in the country.
>>I pointed out  that the Tennesse River flows north to south from 
Nashville along Waldens  Ridge to Chattanooga, where it flows east to west to below 
Memphis until it  flows NORTH to the Mississippi. So, I said, the Tennesee

>>So the  Susquehanna flows east to west.
>>Harrisburg may be east  of the river, but it is on the north bank.

go north, and  somewhere in there I cross the river before I head east.
>>This is  not to patronize anyone.

Still 500 miles away from  home?
