    I agree, Frank, the graphic was atrocious, only surpassed by the spelling mistakes.

    I assume this is the graphic you wanted. IMHO it's crap, and you should really invest some time in learning how to create your own graphics. 

    You said, "she had to get it from somewhere." Well, no. Many media companies have in-house art departments, and they can bang together graphics as required. The results can sometimes be shoddy. You'll note that the graphics accompanying this article include multiple spelling errors: "alignes" for "aligns", "Greenwich meantime" instead of "Greenwich Mean Time" (really atrocious for a British publication, no matter how famously trashy), "longtitude" for "longitude" (at least four times!), "you are you are" instead of "you are", and "differents" for "difference". There's more, but that's enough for now.
