What state is most generous (con't)?

Here's how it comes out with the median:mean ratio taken into account. Just for the heck of it, I color-coded the states to the 2004 Presidential election. There's apparently no meaningful relationship between the propensity to give and voting patterns:

1 Utah
2 New York
3 Maryland
4 California
5 Alabama
6 Wyoming
7 New Jersey
8 Oklahoma
9 Connecticut
10 Georgia
11 South Carolina
12 North Carolina
13 Hawaii
14 Arizona
15 Virginia
16 Idaho
17 Massachusetts
18 Oregon
19 Mississippi
20 Colorado
21 Minnesota
22 Delaware
23 Tennessee
24 Rhode Island
25 Arkansas
26 Nevada
27 Florida
28 Pennsylvania
29 Michigan
30 Montana
31 Kentucky
32 Nebraska
33 Illinois
34 Washington
35 Missouri
36 Kansas
37 Louisiana
38 New Mexico
39 Ohio
40 Iowa
41 Wisconsin
42 Vermont
43 Texas
44 Alaska
45 Indiana
46 New Hampshire
47 South Dakota
48 Maine
49 North Dakota
50 West Virginia

Only a few minor shifts. This is as accurate as I think I'll be able to get it.
