Life in THESE United States

Life in THESE United States



Well, this is definitely The Best New Thing in the World today -- a re-drawn map of the 50 states. with new names, identical in population. (For a larger view of the map and some more information about the state names, go here.) Talk about un-gerrymandering! The GOP would never go for this in a million years as it would serious reduce their number of senators in the Prairie West and in the Deep South. But it would be one man one vote...if anyone cares about such things.

If you're reading this in Philadelphia, we've got our own state! Whoot! Say hello to U.S. Sens. Bob Brady and Chaka Fattah. I wonder if our state, too, has state-run liquor stores.

Have a great weekend -- hopefully next week there'll be less time spent on the dead trees and more time here.
