Florida's about to pass New York as America's No. 3 most populous state!



We've known this. Now everybody does because it said so today on the front of the New York Times. The governor of New York likes seasons. The governor of Florida likes bragging. A couple thoughts: 1. If I had to pick between, oh, Buffalo and Jacksonville, I guess I'd pick Jacksonville. I guess. Rochester and Tampa? Harder. Manhattan and Miami? Easy choice. 2. Sunshine continues to not pay the bills. A question, too: In 50 years from now (100?), how many people in each state, what percentage of the populations, won't be able to live where they currently live because of inexorable sea level rise?
