Statistic of the Day

According to a report in today’s Washington Post 35,000 people moved to Florida last year.

This was unusual, because the Sunshine State’s annual population are more on the order of the 268,000 who moved there in 2005. The Post reporter, Peter Whoriskey, speculates that high taxes and the cost of hurricane insurance are making Florida less attractive to northerners.

Why move south when the south can come to you? My backyard had two feet of snow a week ago, but it’s gone now. Balmy breezes blow and people are walking about in shirtsleeves.

Two thousand eight will be a year of great change. This is one. I’ll try to tip you off to others as I see them.
