Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics

AP - Virulent swine flu swept deeper into Europe Wednesday, extending its global reach as President Barack Obama mourned the first U.S. death, a Mexican toddler in Texas, and said wider school closings in the United States may be necessary. Total U.S. cases surged to nearly 100.


Interesting that when one person dies of swine flu, it is a public health emergency, but when more than thirty thousand people are shot to death every year, it's business as usual.
