While I agree that the glimpse of diversity that has been provided by
respondants to this thread has been
informative, the responses most definitely do not
constitute a random sampling from
a statistician's point of view.
It would be interesting to know the true distribution, or a statistical
approximation of the true distribution, of people on the list. I doubt
we are going to get that, though.
