Back in the 70s a fellow named George Etzel Pearcy wanted to redraw the US's state boundaries, and reduce the number of states to 38. This is what he thought the map should look like:

Apologies for the size, but, it wouldn't have downsized well, due to the very small print.

As I understand it, when they talk about budgets that does not include the costs of wars. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Only if you're GWB. Other wars were in the budget, Bush funded his with emergency spending bills, IIRC. Some ware have been subsidized wit their own tax.

OK thanks, maybe it's not including ongoing wars in the Department of Defense budgets I'm thinking of.

That confused me too, I always went by the Wiki definition. But I figured PEW was more up to date than myself.

Where people in each state were born.


Link appears to be experiencing heavy traffic right now, but it was working a minute ago.

Check out the different states, and see where their citizens came from.

79% of Louisiana residents were born in Louisiana, which is unusually high.
25% of Nevada residents were born in Nevada, which is pretty low.

Your state falls somewhere in between. Check it out.

Looks like most states are seeing significant immigration growth.
