Closing in on 300 Million

Germane to my previous post, the Associated Press reported recently* that the population of the United States will reach 300 million later this year. AP writer Stephen Ohlemacher opened with: "The U.S. population will hit 300 million this fall and it's a good bet the milestone baby -- or immigrant -- will be Hispanic." Ohlemacher noted that "Latinos -- immigrants and those born in this country -- are driving the [U.S.] population growth."
