    Re: The flat earth notion

    In an earlier message sent today under this threadname, I referred to a
    point that had been made by Trevor Kenchington, as follows-
    
    >He is also correct to point out that a vessel departing from any latitude
    >(not just the Equator) with a rhumb-line course of 0 degrees will never
    >reach either pole.
    
    That should have read-
    
    "He is also correct to point out that a vessel departing from any latitude
    (not just the Equator) with a rhumb-line course of 90 degrees will never
    reach either pole."
    
    In admitting to one error, I made another. Sorry about that.
    
    George.
