We all have Google maps nowadays. If I really wanted to know, I'd ask for more information about that little town I never heard of.

I'm sure most people haven't heard of "Ferguson, MO" before the police shooting, but we figured it out. No reason to inaccurately refer to it as "St. Louis" (for example).
