Map of the day

Well, who knew that “German-Americans” were America’s largest “ethnic group”?  Not me. But I sure am one.  Both my mom’s parents came over here  (separately) in the early 1930’s when they saw the writing on the wall back home.  It occurred to me, it’s actually probably not wise to share my mother’s full maiden name on the internet, but the first part was Hildegard Gertrude.  And the last was just as German.  She always said she was quite happy to get married and give it up for Greene.  Anyway, short Economist post on the German-Americans as the “silent minority”, including this map:
