Vocational politics…

Mother Jones has analyzed data from FundRace.org covering presidential campaign donations from Jan. 1, 2007-March 21, 2008 to help us answer the pressing question: who’s likelier to donate to a Democratic (or a Republican) candidate, a science teacher or an English teacher?

See the startling results– and the split for dozens of other occupations– here.

As we reconsider our cubicle-mate’s politics, we might recall that this is the date (the date on which in 1903 Mary Harris “Mother” Jones led a rally in Philadelphia to focus public attention on children mutilated in the state’s textile mills) when we can draw a challenging doodle to celebrate the birthday of the Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis (M.C.) Escher, 1898.
