Spring forward

I am always disoriented and groggy at the beginning of daylight savings time. If you're in the same boat, you might appreciate this cartoon realization of the Second World War, as fought by maps. The image of the Russian-Finnish war of 1940 is in itself worth the price of admission. (Hat-tip to Strange Maps.)

There's something very...appropriate about the US delivering the Bomb in the form of a fastball...
