The Nitpicker’s Guide to Perfect Lives
I would like to start a forum for certain problems I have with this text and story. Let’s be clear, if these little details had been fixed, I know the final product would have been more successful.
1) The drive from Peoria, IL to the Indiana border is less than 3 hours away. Even the most remote point in Indiana takes less than 6 hours. If the quartet left at 5am, how did it take them 12 hours to find a Justice of the Peace in Indiana.
Even if this story had taken place before the Eisenhower Interstate plan of ’56 (and I’m sure it does not, since catfood in easy-to-open cans is a product of the 70s) it’s less than 8 hours to the most remote parts of the state.
