I Love Maps

I have always loved maps.  As a kid, I could spend hours looking through an Atlas.  And, even better, my dad had this huge book in his office that had a collection of US maps by county, showing all kinds of crazy demographic and economic information.  I loved that book.   Since then, I have never found it on sale any where, but this map is a good example of the kind of thing it used to include.  Via strange maps, it is a map of leading religions by county.  The map also has a clever way of showing where the plurality is a majority.

This might interest you. I've recently started using a great little bit of middleware called GMapEZ to insert customised interactive maps on my web-site, without having to learn the Google Maps API.

This example is a map of restored Post Boxes in my city, with photos

This one is a commentary piece on a "Death Cult" scare in the newspapers linked to a Social Networking site.

"Christian"? I could understand classifying Roman Catholics and Mormons as non-Christian, but Baptists, Lutherans and Methodists? There must be a subtlety here that escapes me.

last time I checked catholics and mormons worship christ. I'm neither of these faiths. But I do get your point.
