I had a same question. Actually the sum comes closer to 110 million. But those were only the top three. PATH NY/NJ has other terminals - that were not listed.

Point is the many NY region airports are high on the list.

I am surprised Dallas (with so many runways) was not listed. My experience at night is Dalla/ FW sky have many planes simultaneousl. At one point I counted something like 20 in approach or departure at the same time.

Wouldn't O'Hare be Chicago (Chigo)?
I was thinking more of whole continents and hemispheres not on the map.

Yes, O'hare. I didn't notice my creative spelling of Chicago until it was too late to change it.

Bet you've wondered why...

Table #2 has the least popular reasons like, save my job, get a raise, and give someone an STD.

A great graphic of the most important engine of US development.
There was another here a ways back that showed all the major drainages.

A human on a bicycle (reasonably flat terrain, not like mountain goat Griff) is still the most energy efficient travel.

I guess the question for that lowest quintile is, "how well were the poorest people in the country doing in 2000, " followed by, "are they able to survive while doing 5% worse"? Five percent of a millionaire's income doesn't affect whether they can afford food/shelter/medicine, five percent of a poor person's income probably does.

Losing 16% of effective income for the person making 40 grand is *definitely* hurting them.

Flint is right. Change measured in percentage terms means very little when a loaf of bread costs the same for everyone.
