The Politics of Small Numbers

Uber wonk alert.. the rolling state by state distribution of data from the 2010 Census has made it to Pennsylvania.. almost.  See the Census' official warning shot:

Media Advisory — Census Bureau to Release Local 2010 Census Data for Arizona, California, Connecticut, Idaho, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin

It says 'next week'.. so I expect early in the week.  Then we can all obsess on what the numbers all say.  We will learn things like.. How many people really do live in the City of Pittsburgh?   How much has East Liberty shrunk in the last decade?   How many folks really have moved Downtown and how few folks are left in Braddock?  That should round out the first wave of headlines, and then we will go from there. 

Then there are the redistricting gnomes that can really go enter the zone for the next month. 

Fun fun.

310,000
Down to 5,250
Still under 3,200
1,800

I'm also ashamed to admit how much I am looking forward to this.
