shiner is where!?!

Post 1


either the writer had a few too many shiners and turned the map upside down, er, or i have. shiner is south of austin, south east of san antonio, and north-ish of victoria. texas, not B.C.

Hey... you're right! Shiner, Texas is between San Antonio and Houston, not between Austin and Dallas.

And I'm particularly embarassed about this, because I'm the author of this HHGG entry. I was just tonight trying to find a Web citation about where Shiner, Texas really was, just to check my own memory about how Shiner was between Austin and Dallas. And here I found my own entry... and it disagrees with my American road map.

Our BBC editorial staff may be forgiven about the geographical details... but I have to take the blame, because I wrote the entry, and I've been to Texas, and I'm American. Oops! B{C>
