Note: Dakota isn't a city, its just a reference to the general area of the states of South and North Dakota, but I guess since everyone else before me overlooked this technicality it doesn't really matter? Should we just leave "Dakota" be even though it's not really referring the name of a city in "Rocky Raccoon "? mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I googled Dakota as I wasn't sure ... my American geography isn't the best ... and apparently there is a city called Dakota in Minnesota, though I realise that Paul probably wasn't referring to the city ... it is still a city!

Just googled it again and it is a big city with a population of 323! ??

I did notice, but I decided not to comment since this is an international website and I suspected exactly what alittlebitolder said a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

I also remember the three week hiatus we took on this thread when we couldn't find enough medlies by Paul!  I say leave it.

Dakota isn't much of a city, so we could change it to 'Tucson'? There are so many examples that it is a shame to have one that isn't really a city.
