Voting Trends. And Happy Father’s Day.

June 16, 2007

This is an interesting map of the U.S., showing voting trends by district over the past 40+ years in Presidential elections. I just thought it was interesting to see how the voting changes from election to election. So anyway — just watch the map and it’ll do the work for you, changing every few seconds from one election to the next.

More importantly, though.

Happy early Father’s Day. My dad’s a keeper. On more than one occassion he’s driven for hours just to give me a hug and take me to lunch (and by hours, I mean from Arkansas to TN or NY — and he’d start out for CA tonight if he thought I needed a hug and a steak). The Houseflies I actually know have some top-notch dads. I kind of adopted JU’s entire family a few years ago, and his dad is one of the best. I’ve been on several outdoors-y type trips with C-Love’s dad (other than his questionable skills of navigation, he’s a hoot). Golfed a few rounds with Doc Watson’s dad (he always pays!). So yeah, happy Father’s day.
