I've seen 25or6to4's work, I am impressed.  Furthermore, I've asked him (off-list) if he would be willing to share his work more widely (here on talk-us), as it may "spark" a wider launch into the sort of clean-up of tiger:LSAD=57 data I've been waiting to see happen.  (Their boundary=administrative tags are changed to boundary=census and their admin_level=8 tags are deleted.  I think we want to exclude Alaska from this).

And, of course, I agree with you that this community is awesome!

Yes, TIGER cleanup continues, TIGER cleanup will continue (and continue, and continue...) and one fine day we will drive the last wooden stake into its heart.  TIGER data were and are helpful, yet they continue to need tender, loving mapping from our awesome community, likely for years to come.  A fresh cat box is a beautiful thing, ask any cat.

That, taken together with the boundless (ha) energy exuding from this thread, makes me have a very happy boundary-positive attitude! I’m not much of a boundary editor myself, but fortunately we all have our favorite topics. This community is awesome.
