See Vermont from the ground up

This project cries out for a blog: visiting each one of Vermont's 251 towns, cities, villages, gores and grants. (What's a gore? Not the former VP; read the story in the LAT). So I did a Google search, and lo and behold, there is one!. There's login info to the Times story at the blog, too.

I'll bet there are similar projects in other states; I have a softcover book from the 60s which contains columns written for Arizona Highways about towns in that state. Does your state have one?

The one in AZ must be difficult to complete. Such a big state! How many towns are there?

I honestly don't have a clue. The book I have was written by a newspaper feature columnist, as I recall; it was a compilation of his output over several years.

I"d start the same project for Hawai'i, but at the moment inter-island fares are such I'd have to limit it to Oahu. ;)
