"What America *Really* Looks Like," by Chris Howard. Was looking at the amazing 2012 election maps created by Mark Newman (http://www-personal.umich.edu/~mejn/election/2012). There is an interesting blended voting map (most of the nation is some shade of purple: a blend of Dem. blue & Rep. red). What stands out is how red the nation seems when not taking population density into account; when you do, however, most of those vast red mid-west blocks fade into pale pink & lavender (lo pop. density).
