The first census, in 1790, counted our numbers, then about 4 million. With the release of the current census, we hear about how we are becoming older or more diverse, but we get no discussion of the stunning fact that our nation is one of three global population supergiants and the world’s fourth-fastest growing nation!
We also get no discussion of whether that is good, considering the Great Recession, boom growth’s part in our economic woes and that the Southwest – our fastest-growing region – is in a water crisis of potentially catastrophic implications and proportions.
