The Big NYT map
Win or lose, I LOVE looking at the big NYT map showing the election results in minute blue-red variations county-by-county. Maybe it's because I study property law and I just like counties. But I've always liked it even before my law school days. I appreciate the patchwork aspect. Those election-night maps are just ugly monolithic swathes of blue and red. (mostly red).
By the way, I don't think NYT.com has it available online. It's a special treat for the one-half-of-one percent of us who subscribe to the paper edition. I'll try to scan it and post it later.
Thanks to people for their comments about yesterday's picture. In person comments, I mean, which are the more popular form among my readers. Sol posted his comment online, but he represents the hip "youth" contingency. I try accommodate everyone.
UPDATE: check out this map
that a friend just sent. A variation on shades of gray--in this case shades of purple.
