Jeff McNeil's Island Breezes

Welcome once again to our most exotic regular feature, "Jeff McNeil's Island Breezes." Jeff McNeil writes in to say, "I'm never leaving my computer desk again. Ever. I've downloaded and used Google Earth. Amazing. I don't understand how this is possible. I can see the buildings and trees on Pitcairn Island - and it's an amazing zoom so you get a real feel for how isolated it is. It's a real introvert's adventure." Mr. McNeil is looking specifically at Oeno Island, which, like Henderson, is in the Pitcairn colony. Mr. McNeil is too busy with his imaginary island hopping to tell us about Oeno, but he directs us to what he considers an adequate Wikipedia entry on the subject. You're slipping, McNeil! Wikipedia is the coward's way out!
