Trying a couple remake of the school gun violence chart. Straightening the time axis for bubbles needs a lot of width. Using bars needs oversizing, but it's not bad with transparency.

I was cruising through Round 1A of last night until I hit the last problem. Looks like I wasn't the only one. That last column shows the # of failed tries. Still not sure why I didn't get the first part of it right. .

I'll admit, I was skeptical about packed bars, but I've been won over. This is a cool vis. Bonus: it's interesting insurance data.
