Not done with coloring the states
An interesting look at two maps:
Are conservatives more generous than liberals? Evidence is hardly served by the above maps, but this idea is not without advocates. Arthur C. Brooks' Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism has again challenged the liberal notion that they are the true stewards of the indigent and needy. Ben Gose in an article for philanthropy.com reviews his book here (also the page where I grabbed those maps).
Reason's Tim Cavanaugh dismisses the book as a left-wing hit job.
The Volokh Conspiracy's Jim Lindgren has the definitive post on this.
