      Nice point!

      Yeah, I was thinking like... taking control... governing the US. I'm
      glad it's ok.

      > 8. Are you willing to share your congressional map? I got bolluxed
      up last year when working with flash and congressional districts
      because my maps had too darned many points on the boundaries. Looks
      like you've got a terrifically generalized file. Fast loading, and good.

      Yes, I'm planning to open it up, but may take a little while while we
      finish debugging. What is your website?

      I ran into the same problem of "too darned many points". I used this
      tool, and seems to have worked great http://www.mapshaper.org/

      Thanks again.
