My education of United States geography came from a Fisher Price jigsaw puzzle – and by reading TV Guide. In August 1979, our family vacation took us on the road from our home in Baton Rouge to visit cousins in Indiana and friends in Cleveland. At the time, the country was covered by about 90 different regional editions of the eponymous weekly magazine – which roughly corresponded to the largest television markets (as opposed to the states). Each time we entered a new TV Guide region, my parents bought me that edition to add to my collection. These magazines – and that jigsaw puzzle – conceptualized my perception of the United States landscape and its geographies – including the two perceived Kentuckys that persist in my mind to this day.
