I was looking into propinquity tonight after finishing up with making preparations for onward movement and integration. The old myth was that 90% of Americans didn't move more than 50 miles from where they were born. It appears to be as mythical as dragons. Still, I'm pretty sure we don't really want to run into them. I tell my other half, mostly in jest, if we hear banjo music we turn around and run.
There's other bits of interest in the census quick facts. I will skip over all the bits that hew to race, color and class and focus on those like me and mine and most all of you. Veterans amounted to 22 million Americans. All of them have families. Is that a voting block? No, and it never will be. I think that every other Republic had that problem but not US. We're an ornery bunch.
