I've updated the page with the US election maps, now using white 
instead of purple for counties that are 50/50 (thanks to Gregoire 
Thomas for the code). I like this graph, it relays the information a 
lot better. (Note that New England's missing counties are white as 
well.) I also removed some old code that was still around in the map.r 
file, so it now actually works when source'ing the code.


Moreover, some people asked me about a portfolio of graphics for R,

I would be more than willing to host such a page. If someone has graphs 
(with or without code) that s/he wants to share, please let me know, 
I'll create a page with pointers (or code/graphs itself), and will 
report back to the list.

P.S. And for those who asked whether I forgot Alaska and Hawaii, I did 
indeed forget about Alaska, but for Hawaii you just have to look 
slightly more to the left, just left of your monitor. :-)
