Now imagine this happened every day.
"Thirty-two people reported were killed and more than two dozen injured during a shooting rampage this morning at Virginia Tech, making it the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, law enforcement sources said this afternoon."Funny, I always thought that was Antietam.Your point is well-taken, IOZ. Especially given that higher education has been one of most heavily damaged targets of the war in Iraq.
i can't. honestly.
I suppose to be proportional it would have to be at least ten things like that happening everyday, given the larger population....shudder
If it were New York City, just to pick an example, it would have to be about 50-75 murders a day to equal the per capita Baghdad rate which does indeed bottom out at about 30 and peak at about 200 per day. This peak in NYC would then become somewhere around 300-350. Reference point—New York City has approximately 600 murders in a given year.
IOZ and Professor Cole think alike. At least one of them gets to go on the Newshour.
