Not Mapping It Out...

This was going to be a post about the exciting topic of reapportionment (I know, thrilling stuff. How can I be so cruel and torture you with promises of such excitement but keep breaking your hearts instead?) -- anyway, the post on reapportionment got derailed by this interesting TOS restriction over at xs.to, a service I've been using to upload some images. In the list of things prohibited from being uploaded, in addition to the expected like copyrighted images and pornography, there also is a prohibition on uploading maps. MAPS!. Hopefully, this isn't a case of overprotective limiting of the dissemination of knowledge due to irrational fear of the its potential application by terrorists. Tragic, since I could have been the first person to ever use the 2000 election county-by-county map to actually make a legitimate point.
