Its these changes in longitudes, changes in attitudes
Nothing remains quite the same... sign
With all of our positive easts and all of our negative wests
If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane

Re: This page:

I found a station tantalizingly close to today's Xizang earthquake
only to find that it was named Memphis, TN:
Code:      NM.MPH
Name:     Memphis, TN
Location:     35.12 N, 89.93 E

I suspect that the longitude should be W.
