    You must be writing these comments from your I-phone at the homeless shelter. Stop making a mockery of a perfectly set up commentary forum. My tounge hurts from biting it so hard. Go get another bowl of soup and a stale bun.

    Honestly, this is a good article. I am writing a book and a major source was the census data. I had this perfect plan to publish this book, and then make it a required textbook for students in the course that I will be teaching in September. In short, I had a good money making plan in place that was screwed by the decision to scrap the long-form census. Now I have to get the data from the private sector. I will still make profits, but less because I have to pay for something that I got for free. That said, I don't feel that taxpayers should have to foot the bill for data that I will use to publish a book that will make ME money. I will certainly not be sharing my profits with the taxpayers. I consider myself to be a selfish, but fair person, and I support the decision to scrap the census because it is not used by everyone, and those who use should pay. That said, I do see that I have a tactical advantage because I can afford to buy the data from the private sector, and that might allow me to produce better work than someone who can't afford the data.

      Would your book have come with the crayons, or would they be sold separately?
