    day asking, "who is this Democratic Farmer people? Must be welfare ranchers or something"

    You know, Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar, the Democratic senators from Minnesota.

    The Democratic Party and farmers have a long history that no one seems aware of. Upthread I heard it posited that eastern immigrants are Dems, and the West is Repub. Actually not historically very true. Heck Texas was very Dem, and all of the midwest. Not just the mills, but all the farms too.

    Look at your chart, there's a lot of dems on the left side of 800 per mile. I've no idea why Dems except for Obama, don't try to get some of our votes. To his credit Obama did court rural white people, and I think to some extent it paid off. Many states with some big towns and lots of small ones leaned far enough blue to give him the votes.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?
