These are "larger cities?" I think these all have less than a million
people. Probably much less.

Anyone with a nice city population lookup?

I'm not saying it's a strong theory yet. Just trying to suss out whether
more of the folks who evolt are less likely to be big city dwellers.
Seems to me that many folks are rural or in smaller cities.

The folks in Chicago and Dallas put the kibosh on the theory, I suppose.

Wasn't there gonna be an evolt map at some point? That'd be very handy
about now -- nice statistical graph showing density and distribution of
evolters around the world. :-)

So who's gonna build it? :-)
