              • By the way, my big brother's comment on the Massachusetts stereotypes map: "Whoever created it had a very detailed understanding of the state."

                        I went to school in Massachusetts for a few years, have had close contacts with several other parts of the state, and have visited almost every one of the subdivisions of that map. I, too, thought there was some truth to many of the stereotypes.

                        • Here's a great map. It was done by Jesse Squire, based on the entry stats compiled by the USTFCCCA, which are currently linked in the Day's Best Reading section of the home page.

                          The map shows the ratio of NCAA qualifiers to state population, by state. The redder the state, the greater the ratio. The states with the lightest yellow are those with the lowest ratio.

                          • There is a compilation in an article on the front page of every qualified entrant (800+) from 50 states and 40+ countries.

                            I am puzzled by the poor showing of Oklahoma. Only three qualifiers for NCAA from OK, equaling RI and ID, ahead of SD, NH, ND and MT with 2 and WY, WV ME, HI, DC and AK with one each.

                            • I made that. I'm laid up from hernia surgery and I've got lots of time to create things.

                              I cannot, however, create a more accurate map of my home state:
