Textbook Faux Pas

My fellow Illinoisans (yes, Chuck, that is a word!) will appreciate the following rant:

In my evidence textbook, there exists the following sentence:

"Proof that Whitney Seaver once attended the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign..."

Urbana-Champaign???? Urbana-Champaign????? WTF???

That doesn't even make sense. That's like saying "I'm having a jelly and peanut butter sandwich." It's just not right. It's Champaign-Urbana, you freaky Evidence bookwriters...if you can write thrilling, brilliant problems about hearsay and impeachment and verbal acts, the least you can do is get the name of the damn city in the right order. Urbana-Champaign...sheesh.

Okay, carry on.
