    Woo, first comment! Being British, we don’t have anything quite as interesting as different license plates for each county, but ne’er mind.

    Your concept rocks, by the way. I hope to have a blog half as successful as yours one day. Keep writing!

    We have a bumper sticker that says, “Welcome to Nashville. Now y’all go on home.”

    My neighborhood is where everyone is leaving from, if they can afford to. No one heats their hot tubs in Marin County California much lately.
    A bum had a sign that read, “Donate to the study of environmental factors here”

    Okies, perhaps?

    Bret: I hope you’re not proud of that bumper sticker, because it’s idiotic at best.

    Here in Canada, we’ve got lots of license plates around these parts with Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, etc plates since the US $ is worth ~$1.20 CAD.

    To which I say: welcome! Please! Spend lots! :D

    In Florida the increase in out of state license plates only means that it’s snowbird season again.

    Fitting… Clallam County, Washington has been slowly failing ever since the logging and fishing industries stopped being as profitable. The only way we’re going to survive in the long run is by attracting tourism, since we’ve got a great 1 million acre temperate rainforest national park on one side and Victoria, Canada on the other… So I’m thrilled whenever I see an out-of-state license plate.

    What your diagrams might mean should be less important than what someone thinks they might mean.

    Getting people to think is a very good thing.

    Thank you!

    Actually, living in Buffalo NY, I see the opposite happening – because of the crappy economy and weak dollar, Canadians flock over to shop at our malls

  10. Nick says:

    If it keeps on raining, the levee’s going to break.

  11. Stephen says:

    But Kane H, that’s because of the poor _national_ economy… all the canadians coming to shop in Buffalo NY will be _good_ for your _local_ economy, at least relative to the country as a whole.

  12. rallybird says:

    same logic can apply to passports & countries too.

  13. Tinytim says:

    Sorry to be the graphnazi but strength of local economy should be on the x axis because it is the independent variable. Love your stuff though!

    Actually, places with military bases are exempt from this graph.
