MAR 20, wordplay maps: American Scramble-towns 3,4


Who would ever have guessed? It turns out that an unparalleled word in generating anagrams (letter scrambles) is P-A-L-I-N-D-R-O-M-E-S. We have taken advantage of that property to create this unique series of wordplay maps of imaginary American (and Canadian) locales, each one completed by its official two-letter state (or provincial) abbreviation.

Let's skip all this stuff and get on to the Canadian version, eh? (stay tuned!)
