Some outside comments:

- Great way to illustrate what's happened here ...

-How many actual pages are in each phone book? (I ask because it would be neat to know whether the paper's weight has changed, or something, and if so how much, so as to have a better comparison. The photo is a fantastic illustration, anyway.)

-1086 pages of GNO residential listings (= above the blue line) in the 2004 directory vs. 765 pages in the new one. Page thickness is the same as far as I can tell.

-What's also interesting is that the 2007 directory has a Lasik surgery banner ad (?!) on the top of every page, reducing the number of listings per page to 250 or so; there's an average of about 300 listings per page in the 2004 directory. So the new edition is even smaller than it looks.

-According to this survey, Orleans parish household population was 191,139 as of September 2006 versus 437,186 two months before Katrina. Of course, current population figures differ according to who you ask.

And no, EB in N, not all of "us" went to Texas.
