So, Harper's Magazine likes to publish a list of statistics they've dug up every month. Most are political, some are quirky, others curious. I figured I'd pass along some of the bits I found most interesting from last month's issue. (The sources they give are in parenthesis.) #23 is interesting, because one wonders what kind of percentage change that is. Did the numbers decrease by 51% and 73%, or was that the change in proportion of New Orleans residents (regardless of the city's population)? Of course, either way, I have a hard time believing that deaths and people leaving the city accounted for all of that.
