Less narrative, I guess, but I think that's just a different preference of meaning for "how."

Personally, I loved the narrative. Which I mention not to suggest you shouldn't want something else, but so that the authors know that people liked it as is.

I also found the narrative really helpful. We run some similar products around maps, it was interesting to see how they approached this!

Ok, well if there's anything specific, I'm happy to post some gists.

What data source(s) did you use to display counties?

For the county shapes, the low res data is from D3: https://github.com/mbostock/d3/tree/master/examples/data and the hi res data is processed from the US census: http://www.census.gov/geo/www/cob/
