To Bill Gates a thousand dollars has no use.  If you don't need a
hammer, don't buy one.  If you don't need to use a grid square, then
don't.  Canutillo, Texas isn't even a dot on a map.  But DM61EV is
within yards of the correct spot.  Many people do not know where Belau
is, Even searching a map can take minutes.  The GRID system covers the
world, and with great accuracy.  If you don't need that accuracy and
speed, then use your good old Rand McNally.

Happy thanksgiving!!!
