My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

    37 pages and Census had the majority. Looks like alot of pissed off people out there. Any luck on the requests for emails?

    @NoSenseCensus – duuuhhh?? Since this is a log of Census FOIA requests, I’d be surprised if 100% weren’t related to Census

  3. No Sense Census Says:

    SRL: Duuuhhh!!! Evidently you did not read or scan through the log. I did, all 37 pages.

  4. SRL Says:

    @NoSenseCensus – and what did you learn from reading all 37 pages, other than 100% (the “majority”) of the requests concerned Census issues?

  5. No Sense Census Says:

    That other institutions, news papers, people trying to get personal information about themselves, political interests, and legal interests were there also. The Census related requests were by far the majority, but nowhere near 100%. Exactly what is the point you are trying to make?

    @NoSenseNonsense – “Exactly what is the point you are trying to make?”
    That ALL of the requests concerned Census issues (some misinformed/misdirected) of some type (as you say-personal,political,legal,informational,etc.) – since this is a log of CENSUS BUREAU FOIA requests. My point: one cannot conclude simply that FOIA request = “POd”. Maybe I missed your initial point?

  7. No Sense Census Says:

    SRL: I stand corrected.

  8. SRL Says:

    @NoSenseCensus: No problem – rational discussion/debate leading to clarification & understanding is preferable to much of the emotional, partisan mud-slinging that seems to dominate this site. Sadly, that’s what appears to pass for “journalism” today. I enjoyed the conversation.
