... let me measure how far two points are from each other. Not driving directions, but point-to-point, or, in the vernacular, "as the crow flies." Can someone point me to a site that can do that?

I don't know of a website, but couldn't you just use a ruler and compare it to the scale on the site? I know google maps provides a scale, so you would just need to compare the distance to that...

There should be a Maps Labs link in the bottom left of the screen.

Click on it and enable '[color=#000000][font=arial, sans-serif][size=3][b]Distance Measurement Tool[/b][/size][/font][/color]'.

The ruler should be on the bottom left of the map area.
