A little status here:
I found a better census source (cityname+county instead of just city),
so I have much better correlation now.
I want to do a couple more things to improve the import before doing it,
but I'll probably import the San Francisco Bay Area as a test in the
next couple days. If that goes well, I'll put in California. And then
the rest of it.
