Interesting Maps

An interesting graphic previously posted. The top chart is the 2008 election returns. I’ve been digging through Federal Reserve data, trying to figure out what is happening to rural real estate values and came upon county-by-county credit card delinquencies.

I thought something looked familiar. The funny thing is this goes back millions of years. The reason cotton was grown where it was grown, is because of the location of the rich soils. This 'southern crescent' roughly approximates the shoreline of an ancient sea.
