BTW Drum has a different view.
" 'Individual conscience' means that women only get contraceptives if their employers, their physicians, their pharmacists, their husbands and/or fathers, pastors, and possibly their mayors, Governors, State Secretaries of Health, Congressmen, Senators, and President all agree that in that particular case they're justifiable." --D.C. Sessions

"That's the problem with being implacable foes - no one has any incentive to treat you as anything more than an obstacle to be overcome."

"The 'Road to Serfdom' is really all right turns." --Progressive Whisperer

""The GOP ... where every accusation is also a confession." --Progressive Whisperer

Now that's very interesting. Thanks for bringing it here. I think Drum is probably missing factors like age (a stable but aging population is just the run up for eventual steep decline) or the fact that people leaving a locale for greener pastures tend to raise the median income of the area they left or (most simply) that 27 counties is simply not a large enough sample to stand in for the entire rural countryside, but I'm now going to more closely watch next year's census numbers when they come out.
