Interesting "comment" at the end of that article, Kat (posted by someone else) about how the statistics are figured - and whether or not the people actually received the form. There are always so many variables to statistics that I wonder about blanket suppositions like this article tries to make.

I was actually hoping for a little more science in the article - and I'm not sure that "open but not too open" is a good descriptor of a personality trait. But still, kind of interesting.

Trouble is, since the data is only by state, it's really fairly meaningless. For example, I'm quite certain there are correlations by demographic data -- they just don't sift out at the state level.

I remember hearing both Rush and Glenn encourage people not to participate in the census. The problem in part as I see it is that both of them do nothing but complain about everything their opponents do, attempt to make people believe there's no middle ground, and then encourage people to refuse to cooperate at every turn.

The unfortunate side effect of a policy like that is that it undercuts any ability your side has to accomplish anything meaningful. A policy of pure obstructionism is enormously unsatisfying.
