Burt has presented an enormous amount of data about a complex problem and really covered all kinds of questions. The unusual combination of text and symbols and figures is especially important. Most graphics packages can draw lines and symbols and things, but they generally fall down on the kind of combination shown here. Yet that’s just what you want to see. I do really admire the graphics and display—I think it was excellent.
