Mexico is blue, just like all of the other countries in that category. So I'd suggest that your excerpt is a bit misleading. David Cheifetz March 14th, 2013 at 10:52 am I looked at the entire picture; hence my title. "Latin" and "Northern" aren't commensurable absent explanation. Your point is that the graphic uses "Northern America" not "North America". The editors of the NYT would probably refer to a current geopolitical usage of "Northern America" as explained in Wikipedia, here which doesn't include Mexico (even if once did). In passing, I suspect many parts of the U.S. would not agree that they're in "Northern" America. Cheers, Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply.
