AW:"By the way, you may be interested to learn that originally there were only 13 states. The Founding Fathers never envisioned 50 states with so many underpopulated states."

Now, that's a good one. an 'Underpopulated State'.

What should be do? How about randomly selecting families in 'over populated states' and forcing them to migrate to 'under populated states' to even out the 'population distribution'?

Instead of 1 person per square mile, we could double it to 2 people per square mile through much of the west. Wyoming could use 250,000 or so folks. Heck, let's move 250,000 to Alaska! Lots and lots of wide open land there for ice ranching, reindeer herding, whale watching and catching, seal hunting, snowball fights.......<g>

I'd have to check, but I'd bet that most states in 1776 had a whole lot population that most of the midwest states today.
