Tired of all the polls, predictions and other political chatter of the U.S. media? For some fun and a different perspective, check out Graphic Detail from the Economist. This blog is one of my favorites. A creation of the respected UK economics and politics magazine, Graphic Detail is a gold mine of "Charts, Maps and Infographics" illustrating issues in the news, projections, worldwide statistics, and just plain fascinating facts. It graphically presents everything from the use of language in Presidential debates and effective tax rates around the world to James Bond film comparisons and a "Global Debt Clock." In addition to its "Daily Chart" posts, Graphic Detail also includes interactive data features from the Economist and provides links to other interesting data on the web.
