[TIPS] - census mashup

This is what I learned about Lemoyne:
In 2000, the total population was 8,172. Within 3 miles of Lemoyne, the population was 90,217, and within 5 miles of Lemoyne the population was 172,133.
The median income was $40,517, and within 3 miles it dropped to $35,470, and within 5 miles it was $39,704.
I could go on. How did I learn this? A mashup with google maps and the 2000 census data. Very interesting. Plug in any city in the US and find this and much more data.
