Thanks to Caroline for sending me the link to a CNN article about The Modern Language Association. It gives a map of the languages spoken in the USA. I did a search on "French" and it appears that some of the counties with the least number of French speakers form an almost perfect vertical line right in the middle of the USA. Fascinating stuff.
