    Wow, great job ST. Can I help you out in anyway updating the graph? I don't know much about coding, and I don't really know how you did it in the first place.

    I'm betting you meant for those to be negative numbers.
    Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.

    You win. It shows huh?

    I must now beg pardon of the chartmaster, I'm assuming that would be none other than our esteemed Mr. smokedtrout, and ask forgiveness for my oversite. If it wouldn't be too much trouble, perhaps you could adjust my position to reflect these numbers?

    I promise to have extra helpings of humble pie.

    Added Snowball 2 and liberalized nxtrastout. Graph should be up to date.

    Snowball, welcome to the Libertarian Right! nxtra, no problems, kinda wondered but actually I thought you'd be closer to the middle.

    Vihs, thanks for the kind words, it's easy to do just give me a kick in the rear if I get lazy and ignore it. I wrote a little program to plot the graph all I have to do is update the input file and run it.

    Also, Orang mentioned a way to get around the clutter a few posts back, any brainstorming on how to make things more presentable is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Maybe that's becuase I try not to confuse Idealism with common sense.

    Thanks man Had this been about 2 years ago I'm sure it would have decidedly been on the left. Once you have a kid, a wife and career to build then things start to come into perspective. You can't get away with saying crap like you'd give up your own welfare to keep kids from starving in foreign countries. That makes sense until you have to keep the kid at your own breakfast table from starving

    Added another point for PaternityTest. Graph should be up to date.

    You guys think think style is easier to read? We can change any of the colors and fonts if you think that'd help.

    I appreciate your time and effort on this.

    For me, it depends on how I read it. If I look at a number first then check the corresponding name it is very easy to read. But if I check the name first, then try to find the corresponding number, it becomes somewhat difficult. If people go from number to name, I think it will work fine.

    Yeah maybe listing names alphabetically would help...and the latest values for eco & soc after the name?

    Nice attempt at uncluttering the lower left hand corner...

    It works for me.
