"America is becoming more like itself again. More Americans are trying to make it so, in more places, than most Americans are aware. Even as the country is becoming worse in obvious ways—angrier, more divided, less able to do the basic business of governing itself—it is becoming distinctly better on a range of other indicators that are harder to perceive. The pattern these efforts create also remains hidden. Americans don’t realize how fast the country is moving toward becoming a better version of itself.

How can this be? Let me explain."

James Fallows, national correspondent for The Atlantic, is a thoughtful optimist, a true lover of America, and one of my favorite writers. I enjoyed this article of his as I always do. Thank you, +Esther Wojcicki
A positive story on America....good to read something like this after all the tragic stories.

1876 Baker Pictorial 'Porcineograph' Map of the United States (as Pig)

_This Porcineograph. / This Good-Cheer Souvenir. _

The coveted Porcineograph! One of the greatest examples of cartographic whimsy ever made! This is a comical 1876 William Emerson Baker pictorial map of the United States as a pig. With the pig's snout at Maine and its tail in 'Alas-queue', the continental United States serves as the pig's body. Its four legs are represented by Florida and Baja California, with a 'ghost' leg stretching across the Pacific to Hawaii, then known as the Sandwich Islands (which are appropriately illustrated as sandwiches) and another 'ghost' leg resting on Cuba, illustrated as a sausage. Portraying the 'gehography' of the United States, this broadside was originally created by the author as a 'good-cheer souvenir' for a party held by the author to launch what he viewed as new kind of pig farm, featuring controlled diets and ultra-clean housing. He dubbed this venture a 'Sanitary Piggery', and it so happened that the party coincided with the Bunker Hill Centennial. In an effort to foster more friendly relations between the north and the south, the author designed this broadside for his guests. The whole is framed by the state seals and each is captioned by, supposedly, the most popular pork dish in each state. In the lower left and lower right corners, vignettes are included illustrating two events in U.S. history involving pigs that had a direct impact on the course of events. Due to 'numerous requests' the author published this broadside for the public, with all the proceeds going to charity.
