yay, you, LAT

Am I the only person who has a problem with it? Maybe I'm too sensitive; maybe it's unreasonable to ask the international desk to know the difference between Chile and Argentina, much less the difference between ConcepciĆ³n and Santiago. That's my problem -- I'm just too pedantic.

Looks like the "Chile" label is scooted over just a tad to the right.

Yeah, you're way to sensitive. I mean, the country is highlighted and labeled (off-Center), the area affected is highlighted and labeled and the concentric circles are originating from Chile. SO by no means do I think the creaters of the map put "Chile" over Argentina as to incorrectly label the adjacent country.
