So what's hot?
Cartography. Or more precisely, cartographers.
It's a rare occurrence - maybe it hasn't happened since the time of Mason and Dixon in the mid-18th century - that cartographic experts have acquired the status of celebrities. And certainly it's the first time in history, our short history, that map-makers, or map-readers, or map-interpreters, have become television personalities, hounded by star-struck press, booked for interviews and begged for photo-ops. One of them even got to kiss the prime minister, on camera.
