I will be the first to say that this post needs the slide in question (minus incriminating identifiers).

I think I have a pretty solid idea of the "type" of chart that he is referring to. Have you ever seen a chart composed of lime green, yellow, and magenta? You do not have to be a chart expert to know there is something distinctly wrong about that color scheme. Unless you are in an 80's rock band.

You HAVE to do a classic consultant ninja analysis of this report, published by the US Travel Association! Nobody could do one better, I am SURE. Please?
