Illinois, Home of Superman

National Geographic asked all 100 US senators to draw a map of their state, including at least three points of interest. Dick Durbin of Illinois included Chicago (home of Obama and the Bears), Springfield (Home of Abe Lincoln and Durbin himself; no mention of the Simpsons) — and Metropolis, home of Superman. Cute, funny, but before you start to rant about Durbin being a jackass when Nat Geo just wants to spread the literacy of geography, always check Google Maps first. Yes, Metropolis, Illinois is a real place.
