I downloaded my county and checked a few things.  Some interchanges
that were reconfigured in 2007-08 still appear in their old
configuration.  (For that matter, an interchange that was reconfigured
from 1994-2003 still appears mostly in its old configuration.)  But I
suppose the census bureau isn't that interested in freeways.  Still,
most errors (even non-freeway ones) from the '07 files still persist
in '09.

There are a few new streets in there which weren't imported to OSM
before.  Some of them, I've drawn from Yahoo! imagery.  Now I have
names for those.  Of course, I could have done my own field
observation, but I have other priorities.

Does this font make me look fat?
