    That name the states deal ( for me at least) was easy ( 50/50 ) ... particularly because Colorado and Wyoming did not have dual choices of either for either of them. NM and AZ had a dual choice for one of them, so that took a closer look. Ditto for ND and SD.

    As to the phrase "rectangular" for CO and WY, not quite so... they, like most similar N-to S boundaries, are longitudinal, meaning these sides are arcs.

    Quite true, as noted in my recent post.. those sides are curved !
