Living in New Jersey and having lived near horse farms, the 1.1 million acre Pine Barrens nature reserve, and the sparsely-populated highlands of Sussex County, I find it very curious that all of this is considered "urban area".

The state partially named for its founder wasn't - it was named after the founder's father.

I always learned that West Virginia is the only state with two panhandles, but...looking at a map of Maryland, I can definitely see the argument.

I knew Louisiana was historically connected to France, but having a legal system partially based on the Napoleonic Code just takes it to another level

The Napoleonic Code was promulgated the year after the Louisiana Purchase so all it took is a trip to Paris to buy a copy of the book.

The quibble I have is that the French first name is pronounced "pee-air", whereas the capital of SD is pronounced "peer".

According to Utah Law, polygamy or bigamy is a crime. Polygamy is considered a third degree felony in the state. This means you could potentially spend a long time in prison (up to 5 years) and pay hefty fines

The airports question may no longer be valid. Avelo Airlines has been flying regularly scheduled commercial flights out of Wilmington Airport since October 2022.
