    Traveling during lockdown

    In the past two weeks of wording Green-Wood has taken me to over 20 newly added cities, including my birthplace and at least 6 other cities I’ve visited over the years before the pandemic shut down most travel. All aboard!

  • Job Growth and Urban Sprawl

    Newly discovered cities were: COLOMBO; DAYTON; LIMA; MONTGOMERY; ORLANDO; SCRANTON; and WELLINGTON. And ROMANIA joined the Glossary’s league of nations.
