I’ve recently been evaluating WordPress shopping cart plugins to choose the best one for a project I’m working on. One of things I wanted to know is what database tables, custom post type, and custom taxonomies each plugin adds.

Our 2010 census form arrived in the mail today but it’s impossible to fill it out according to the instructions. Why, you ask?
Well, today is March 16, 2010. The packet contains a letter dated March 15, 2010, which includes the following text in bold print: Please complete and mail back the enclosed census form today.
Okay, I guess I better get to it.
Question 1: How many people were living or staying in this house, apartment, or mobile home on April 1, 2010?
