fuzzy math

Gridskipper's data dump compares LA and NY on several key metrics:

"breakdown of population, number of bars/clubs, and Google hits for Donald Trump’s hair vs. Hugh Hefner’s hair pie."

how do we rate? NY beats LA by 4.3 million people but in terms of bars, NY only has 789 more. my math ability sucks, but doesn't that mean that on a per capita basis, LA wins the bar to people ratio by a landslide?

as for Hugh vs. the Donald, the Donald trumps Hugh (couldn't resist) 86,000 google mentions to hugh's paltry 1,720. but is that really a loss? do we really want to inundate the web with hugh's hair pie? again, I say LA wins.
