The National Journal published a post regarding red states, blue states and ‘family values’.  I particularly like this quote:

Six of the seven states with the lowest divorce rates in 2007, and all seven with the lowest teen birthrates in 2006, voted blue in both elections. Six of the seven states with the highest divorce rates in 2007, and five of the seven with the highest teen birthrates, voted red. It’s as if family strictures undermine family structures.

Reading that last line just recalled a little scene with some Imperial Overlords of a long time ago:

Princess Leia: The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.

Chalk that up for another lesson we could all learn from Star Wars.
