3. Correction: not 'fleeing' - being voted out

Or rather, not so much being 'voted out' but that Congress, or at least the Democratic Caucus, is finally starting to more closely represent the nation.

4. In a logically proportioned Congress, white men would be about 36%

50/50 M/F
Then among men, 72% White, 13% Black, 5% Asian. And we're counting hispanics as "white men"

Yes, population sampling is part of my life.....
