    Buffalo, New York

    Oh yeah... this is a relevant topic for a Disney chat forum!

    It occured to me today (don't ask why) that our great nation was founded on the Eastern Seabord and slowly moved Westward. Therefore, the great plains of the midwest were discovered long after the establishment of the original 13 colonies. Why, then, was a city in New York named Buffalo?

    Ya know, I never actually thought about that but it's a pretty good question.

    In the same vein, why is it NEW York? There's squat "new" about it.

    Los Angeles? The angels? Where are they when the traffic is so bad?

    Minneapolis? Nothing "minnie" nor "mickey" is there!

    I feel your pain.
