    A Red/Blue breakdown map of the US in the 2004 Presidential ElectionA lot of people are linking to this map in USA today, showing a red/blue breakdown of the country by county. I have a different take on it.

    This is the USA Today page from where the map comes from. I'm not sure what grey means. Note that the blue is where all the population is. Look at New York State, for instance. Easily blue, is in fact mostly red, 'cept a few university counties (center: Colgate, Ithica, Binghampton Syracuse), and NYC, which is hard to see in this graphic, because its geographically small, but people are stacked up on top of each other.

    Also, check out the one county of Idaho that went to Kerry – that's where Sun Valley is, where he has a home. Also, I've noticed that a lot of the scattered blue counties are near things like National Parks (Glacier in Montana, Yellowstone in WY, Grand Canyon in AZ, Black Hill of SD, Voyageurs in Minn, Isle Royal in the Upper Penninsula in Michigan). Is that not fascinating? Wouldn't these people know what's best for the environment?
