Interesting Florida/Hurricanes graphic...
Edited on Tue Sep-21-04 01:39 PM by UdoKier


As I said, this is interesting, but there is at least one discrepancy. The Florida Keys are pink. The keys' biggest city, Key West is overwhelmingly democratic, so I don't think "The Keys" voted for Bush. They have Monroe county in 2 diffferent colors, pink in the Keys, blue on the mainland. It doesn't make sense. If you know which way Monroe county went, let me know.

Other than that, it's a cool graphic - and otherwise accurate as far as I know...

2. I believe Naples is in Collier County. FUNNY graphic though!

3. Dammit - you're right!

I'll correct it.

But Monroe IS 2 different colors. Why?

I still don't believe the keys went for Bush.

4. Hey, c'mon!
This is making it a lot more difficult to hang on to my atheism!

5. Sad
Making light of the devastation we've experienced here in Florida is not only in poor taste it's down right offensive! People in this great State are suffering and you think that's a "cool graphic"? Sickening.

By the way, the path of Charley went right through Osceola, Orange and Volusia counties (ie, Gore counties). If you're going to continue to make fun of us down here, at least get the facts right. Very sad.

6. Yes, you are correct...the map is wrong.
But it is just a joke. No one here advocates harm to you. Especially if you're a liberal!

10. No, not the real hurricanes and devastation.
The map with the stupid lines on it is the joke. I have family in Orlando and I received damage from Ivan. No one's laughing at you. Why don't you take your indignation over the Freepville where I'm sure you'll find "jokes" about killing Hillary.

11. Hang in there
I'm sure that the Bush administrations will just break the Treasury bank on your behalf any minute now.

Until then, you'll have to make do with the lesser ministrations of folks like Church of the Brethren Disaster Relief. We're not very wealthy, but we do interrupt our lives and take time off our jobs to go where we're needed.

12. This was most certainly intended as a joke, but
the hurricanes have affected too many people here at DU for this to NOT be inflammatory..

I am locking this to spare all anymore angst..
