    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    CDC officials noted that despite the record number of births, this is nothing like what occurred in the 1950s, when a much smaller population of women were having nearly four children each, on average. That baby boom quickly transformed society, affecting everything from school construction to consumer culture.

    Good grief... you realize that that number would make up about 0.0000001% of all births in this country, right?

    I would say that the influx of Roman Catholic citizens of Mexican heritage that don't believe in birth control is as much of a contributor as anything.

    In general:

    Population growth = more women = more births = population growth = .... (and around we go)

    I don't see this as any amazing surprise.

    Re: U.S. Births Top Baby Boom Peak

    Yeah what they need to look at is the birth rate per capita, not the over all birth rate.

    I mean we have a record number of people in the country right now, vs our previous high birth rate like 60 years ago... obviously there are some differences here


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!
