Any way to do this? I know I can take a screenshot, but I was hoping to create a few geographical posts and it would be great to have a Google Map embedded in the the posts so that readers can click on individual map points and get info.

Geek Veterans - any way to do this?

No. Active HTML and such is stomped on as a security measure. You can probably link a map, though you might have to add some ampersand encoding for weird characters. Google map links contain the map target and zoom level, so what you see will be close to what others will see.
