I understand that the moon is tidally locked with the earth. What I don't understand is why the moon's movement is described as being "such that the same face is always facing the Earth." It appears to me as though the same area of the moon is being constantly lit by the sun. Doesn't that mean that that "face" is always facing the sun? I am not trying to be argumentative nor refute Cassini's Laws. I am just trying to understand the meaning of "face" in this particular context.

Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
