The Quakers inexplicably appeared in the New York Times TAG CLOUD tonight. Not sure why Penn is represented, but it suggests that the geeks at the NYT should tweak the FONTSIZE algorithm to distinguish between number three (Virginia Tech) and number thirty-four (Penn). Talk about a useless cloud. Why bother???

Edward Tufte would call it chartjunk!
