Child's Play

American politics, from what I have understood, is largely about numbers. Be it the campaign or the actual election furore itself. For those that have been following the recently held Presidential election, author Steve Sailer has this interesting observation, "...voters are picking their parties based on differing approaches to the most fundamentally important human activity: having babies." And goes on to rest his case thus: "The white people in Republican-voting regions consistently have more children than the white people in Democratic-voting regions. The more kids whites have, the more pro-Bush they get."

Ah, so that was it!

Now that you know "white birthrates and Republican voting are closely correlated" continue reading "Baby Gap" to learn what causes what.

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
