I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Some Statistics

As a retired manufacturing engineer I know about statistics - I have designed and conducted many multi-variable industrial experiments. Well here is a tool I can use to analyze the culture and politics of the United States that is now my passion.

I mentioned OrderFromRandomness.com in this post below. The site also has a great tool, Basic USA 360 Application that lets you chose two variables from over 360 available and see how well they correlate. Here is an example of one I did, Evangelicals per 1000 and teen births per 1000 of the female population aged 15-19. If you click on the link you will see there seems to be a pretty good correlation, states with the highest number of evangelicals also have the highest teen birth rate. You can't copy the graphic but a link is supplied. Go check the site out.
