Cartograms

I haven't written my thoughts on the election, and I do not plan on doing so. Grief is a personal thing. ;-)

However, this is interesting.

I'm going to assume that everyone's seen the "Purple Map", which shows how red and blue each state really is by mixing the two. (For those of you who are color-challenged, red + blue = purple.)

Although that does more appropriately show how close this election was, it still looks like Wyoming has as much clout as New York. The page I linked to above shows cartograms which warps the counties so they are proportional to their population in both purple and red-blue style maps.
