    Of minor interest, the old program has merged with a couple others that are taking a more focused approach to the research.  "randomly selected" grids for monitoring to get a sample size.

    The good:  There appears to be a very deliberate attempt to evenly distribute the grid across the country. 

    The bad:  It appears to have a very high bias towards areas near universities and existing wildlife refuges (at least in Utah)  (though there are a very few that are rather remote)

    I've never seen the north/south split in the eastern monarchs before, as shown on the map.  No rationale presented why they delineate those.

    Man's unfailing capacity to believe what he prefers to be true rather than what the evidence shows to be likely and possible has always astounded me. We long for a caring Universe which will save us from our childish mistakes, and in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary we will pin all our hopes on the slimmest of doubts. God has not been proven not to exist, therefore he must exist.
    ~Academician Prokhor Zakharov
