Some interesting distribution information

This election saw some interesting divisions on subjects based on locale, as Tom mentioned in the comments over here. This site has some neat drill-down you can do on all the Virginia contests, both by region and county. You can see the Webb-Allen race by region and what a huge skew the area containing Arlington and the area containing Newport News had for Webb, or how for some reason Greensville and Campbell county were the only two to get a majority of no votes on question 2 about the powers of the general assembly. Maybe I’m just a big numbers nerd, but I think looking at the distributions is neat even on issues I didn’t give a toss about.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
