Real dangers milk or SUVs

It just amazes me that these things are still legal while we are forbidden from eating cheese made from unpasturized milk due to health and safety concerns.

According to this blogger, Red states are more generous than blue states. But if you go back to the original source data, then resort the data by average income, you come up with the chart indicated below. Not much different, except that instead of charting some ambigous "Generosity Index", what you're reporting is simply that states with lower annual AGI are more likely to vote for Bush.

No surpise there. Lower income, less money towards education, more likely to vote red.
