I don’t know why all these maps have been showing up lately in my feed. It’s not a map thing as much as it is a rhetoric/ data thing. However, when I put all the maps together, see them in my dashboard, I’m wondering if there is something to be gleaned from all the maps together. It is something that has come up entirely by accident. I’m looking forward to seeing how this plays out.
