Speechwriter's Resource: Average

Need to know the average teacher salary by state? How about the average house size? Maybe the average IQ?

There's nothing "average" about this Yahoo blog entry that puts together several averages at your fingertips. Are there other Web sites you like to use when you need information in a hurry?

Speechwriter's Resource: #1 songs

Here's a nifty little site that speechwriters and other government communicators may find useful when you are looking for something noteworthy to note an anniversary or celebration. David Pogue, tech columnist for The New York Times, writes in his blog today about a site that allows you to find out the number one song in America on any given day.

Josh Hosler's Web site easily gives you access to the number one songs from the time Billboard started charting the tunes. Whether you want to know what song was number one on the day your guest of honor was born or when your special friend graduated from college, this site allows you to find out the answer to those questions, without having to reveal your age.
