    Otherwise you have to use a 3rd party host to post pictures in comments.

    I'd definitely enjoy seeing a diary of your own though.

    •  So I've come to the conclusion (1+ / 0-)

      that the states in which I feel that I could improve the most on these maps are MA, NJ, and PA.

      Since those are only three states, the diary would be of a manageable size, and it wouldn't take too long to write.

      I'll try to get my diary up as soon as I have any free time.

      As for the rest of your maps, either I agree with them completely or any differences that I would make are minor enough that it wouldn't be worth drawing a whole new map.

        I'm guessing your map is closer to my second or third one, but really the south Jersey districts had at least one district combine disparate communities of interest when I tried drawing them.

        •  My districts 1 and 2 (0+ / 0-)

          are closest to your first map, but my district 3 is closest to your third map (just imagine district 3 containing all of Mercer County).

          My district 4 contains all of Ocean County, and... etc.

          I know that the saying is that a picture is worth a thousand words. That seems particularly true in this case. I'll try to get my diary up.
