What: The Washington Post revisits the issue of whether LDS missionaries should be counted for the 2010 census.
Quote: "Utah officials argue that the census should count the estimated 13,000 state residents who are temporarily living in other states or overseas as Mormon missionaries. The arguments are parochial, but the stakes are huge: Population figures compiled during the census will help determine the distribution of at least $300 billion in federal funding to state and local governments for roads, schools, hospitals and other programs."
Reaction: People seem to forget that I put this issue to rest with my previous assertion that "Missionaries are People Too!"
