as per this thread, I need to contact one person from every county in the US.
What would be the simplest way to do it. Anybody know of a data dase, or a mailing list (free ) that would be a jumping off point?
And neither does Louisiana. However, you have “burroughs”, and LA has “parishes”. From the standpoint of the sort of databases that the OP is looking for, they may be considered identical concepts. Or, given the sparse population, AK might be considered one BIG, BIG county. For instance, here is an Alaska “counties” map that was reached from a link proclaiming it to be a map of Alaska “burroughs”:
CA counties aren’t guaranteed exclusive representation in the legislature. State senatorial districts don’t neccesarily follow county lines, and assembly districts are based on population. Alpine county is in senate district 1 with several other counties and parts of counties.
I want to have my ashes spread in every county in every state in the US!
I want to put a tiny 1/3101 th of my mortal remains in 3101 gelitin capsules and send them to one person in every county to dispose of them as they see fit, as long as they do it in their county.
I not only think this is feasable, I think people might get a kick out of it and lend a hand.
Now you see my quandry.
Enough about the county/parrish/borrough/etc. debate. Stick to the spirit of the question, folks, and help me be “Buried over America!”
If you’re going to send a 37 cent first-class letter to 3,000 people, it’s gonna cost you $1,100. Is it worth it?
Torgo’s plan, of course, will be considerably more expensive, as it will involve dinner-and-a-movie times 3,000, unless he’s going to practice the disgusting art of self-pollution, in which case he’s just out the gas expenses, plus the cost of plane tickets to Hawaii and Alaska.
Not to mention the down-time off work, since if he ejaculates once a day–a not unreasonable goal–it will take him nearly 10 years to accomplish his task. Better look into some heavy corporate sponsorship for this project, Torgo.
Plus the estate will have to pony up whatever the cost of sending these capsules registered mail with return receipt (per USPS Publication 52, sections 462.2 and 463b) , and the estate administrator’s costs in handling all this.
Why are you worrying about this, anyway? If your estate has the money to pay your estate administrator or executor to do this, why not put it in your will, and leave the overhead to them?
If they don’t follow your wishes, then you can just haunt them.
