Graphical Tool Lets You Analyze Word of the State of the Union Address

The New York Times today has a nifty tool that
lets you view, in graphical form, how many times
President Bush used a specific word in this and
past years' State of the Union Addresses. For example,
in 2005, the President used the word 'freedom' twenty-
one times in his State of the Union Address. In last night's
address, he used the word three times. In addition to the
word count, you are also given brief excerpts revealing
the context for how the term was used in each address.
