Hey dude, don't be evil

Or stupid.

Seems a lot of folks are getting all confused-like about the war in Georgia. Just because armored columns are moving south into Georgia doesn't mean you need to look towards I-75 and Chattanooga:
Did you know that Russian troops are thrusting into the outskirts of Savannah, Georgia? That's what readers will learn from a Google Maps graphic accompanying a news story about Russian incursions into Georgia
He's got screen shots, too. Wonder if these will disappear from the Google Cache?

Looks like Sky News got confused as well:
It appears Google is not the only one feeling a bit geographically befuddled. The venerable Sky News is proudly displaying a handy guide to Georgia on a smart 'In-Depth' page (presently here), explaining that it is "also known as the Peach State and the Empire State of the South".
Hey, no war for peaches!
