Awareness of the outside world. NYT: Do You Live in a Political Bubble?, Wezerek, Enos and Brown, April 30, 2021. Enter your address to see the political party of the thousand voters closest to you. My address? “You live in a Republican bubble. Only 7 percent of your neighbors are Democrats.” This is my surprised face. If you click over, once you get the map, scroll down for the commentary.

SWAT(R). What the cool kids are wearing for ears, eyes, and zippers.
Given how hard it is to find the original pink, I assume most people prefer the clear version. Can’t understand why. I want to know when to reapply and where it is so that I don’t run my hand through it.
Horses are about equal for fly bites in their ears. Rodney gets way more bites on his belly. Weird.
Milton was so not into the photo shoot. This was the best of 13 while I ran out of hands to hold the phone, focus on his ear, and keep him from nosediving to the grass.
I said the same thing back in 2012. What can I tell you, I’m consistent.

I was surprised to find that our area was split almost 50/50 politically. 50% Republican, 49% Democrat, 1% independent (I’m registered as one of the 1%, but voted Dem down the board).
Democratic bubble. Only 23% republican. Not a surprise at all. At my previous address it would probably be even more marked. Independents? Found the word, but the bubble too small to see.
Ah, SWAT. That oh-so-distinctive pink. And the smell….
A friend was deeply shocked that we knew Trump-supporters. Yes, and we speak to them because they are family. But we avoid politics. (Blue state and blue county.)
I wonder if these numbers shift over time, and if so over what span – months, years, decades – and by how much?
