For some reason, I thought Florida had the most coastline.  Maybe that was Continental US.  Must have been one of those tidbits I learned before Alaska was a state.  Yes, I was in school before then. No, I don't have a memory of Az becoming a state.  :)

Hey, Keokuk. Well worth winning the prize. Lots (over 100) of eagles in the winter and there is a mall and a MacDonalds.
