Data Points: States Cut Higher-Education Spending

I don't mean to critize an otherwise helpful map but shades of blue for BOTH positive and negative percentages is a terrible way to display data. Perhaps use red for negative?

I would agree wholeheartedly!

It is "politically correct" to use blue with different shades. Remember "developing countries" and "negative growth?"

Love the map. Love the colors. What is it with professors and their inability to simply appreciate something useful, without cranking up the critical thinking all the time? Too bad critical thinking doesn't have different percentages, or an "off" switch!

It is a bit confusing using merely shades of blue :)
