Not as many of California's 95 meteorites are paired as you might
think. If all of California's current known finds were included,
I'm pretty confident that there would be more than 95 unpaired
meteorites. At least 20 of my finds are unpaired, and I don't
expect that I represent a fifth of the state's total.

Still, it would be interesting if one could break out the state
totals by minimum ~unique~ finds (based on estimates from
classification differences and locality). --Rob
