Cool Google Map - Where Each Apostle Died

My colleague and friend, Brian Franklin, showed me this cool map that gives the location of where each apostle died.  As you know, all but one of them died violently, while the Apostle John had the misfortune of surviving his torture and living in exile.  Was he jealous of his brothers who had already passed away?  I wonder about that, sometimes.  Anyway, here's the map:

For more information, this link has a good discussion of these men and their deaths.   It's hard to tell if these traditions are true, because we have very few Christian documents from that time.  (Stupid Roman persecution.)
