Enumerate

The WaPo is editorializing that “Congress Should Stop the Trump Administration From Fouling The Census”

WaPo is joking, right? The Constitution says the Census should “enumerate” the population. Enumerate simply means count.

I have filled out a bunch of Census forms. Number of bathrooms?

Air/conditioning, yes or no? White, Black, Hispanic…?

“Enumerate” went out the window a long, long time ago. Pages ago.

Enumerate can be completed on a postcard, “How many people live at this address?”

Or if you prefer, “How many citizens live at this address?”

That’s it, folks! And that’s all it should be!
