right. whatever gets done with boundaries should be done on something
that at least tries to reflect facts, and not based on notions. that's why
i suggested going to TIGER 2013 as, while it may not perfectly reflect
the exact legal boundaries, it should be pretty close, as the Census
Bureau does actually care about getting the headcounts right.
