The true test of civilization is, not the census, nor the size of the cities, nor the crops, but the kind of man that the country turns out.-Ralph Waldo Emerson 

“The reason the government sells the census as your ticket to getting goodies – rather than as your civic duty – is that distributing goodies is now all the government does.”
– Tom G. Palmer

we are work in progress

we may not know our true numbers.

don’t worry about us

one day we will get it right

we will get the correct number

for planning

as at now,

we are work in progress.



getting census numbers correct

is hard.

the logistics are much

the benefits awesome.

don’t you know,

the numbers determine

who gets what?

so how can we get it right?

our census is work in progress

so , don’t bother

we will perfect it one day.



other climes may get it right

but they are not US.

they don’t joke with planning.

we plan jokingly

aren’t we planning to fail?

don’t bother we are work in progress.
