just simple enough that i feel i've gleaned some perspective without much effort. kind of ambient. i was looking through the comments for people from MN. a not-so-recent NYT applet about the florida primaries came to mind (http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2008/01/29/us/politics/20080129_FLORIDA_PRIMARY_FEATURE.html). i like how the NYT applet brings a human/anecdotal aspect to the data, which is what i was looking for in the comments. i kind of like to hear the boom and bust stories ... but maybe because i'm from nevada ;)
