We have been doing very well on keeping the spammers out lately. TypePad has caught literally hundreds of spam comments to the one or two that slip through, but the one on this thread today reminded me of a good place to put this little tidbit from today's WSJ--then I will delete the spam.

"The U.S. population grew only 0.74% between 2011 and 2012 and only 0.72% between 2010 and 2011. Those rates are well below the average of 1.2% seen during the economic boom of the 1990s. In the 1950s, the population grew about 1.8% a year on average."

So last year we added about 2.2M people nationwide. Something to keep in mind when you hear the wild ABAG forecasts for Bay Area population growth.
