Salem If You Got ‘Em

So let me get this straight. West Salem, Illinois (where today’s earthquake was centered) is almost due east of Salem, Illinois.

I guess that’s why some enterprising and befuddled frontiersmen decided to build a New Salem northwest of Springfield. Crazy, misdirected Southern Illinoisans.
