Statistics Are Just NUMBERS, Right?

I’m not a fan (nor a regular reader) of the Huffington Post, any more than I am of ‘public’ television or NPR.(No, that’s not true – I dislike HuffPO more, for their outright bombast)  At least NPR tries to have the ‘cosmetic appearance’ of centricity.

HOWEVER

Give Me Liberty linked to a HuffPo stat-fest, showing how drug overdoses and traffic accidents accounted for more deaths statistically than firearms!

Now most readers of this blog (all two of you) knew this, but my point is this comes from the Huffington Post!

Does this mean they’re preparing an opinion piece about severely restricting drug access and use or driving?

I kinda doubt it.

But, it IS good to see.

  1. Yeah, that’ll happen. Right after Ariana H expresses a desire for a Goldwater-libertarian candidate.🙂

  2. There are a lot of ways to get killed more likely than guns but it doesn’t fit in with the media’s agenda. Also, a nice juicy murder/suicide with a gun sells more papers than a boring falling down some stairs or choking on your dinner.
