  •  This is an interesting piece. As I was driving (2+ / 0-)

    today, I noticed the signboards saying

    2795 people have died on Texas roads this year
    presumably in an attempt to get people to be more careful.

    Isn't that close to the number who died on 9/11?

    It's not extraordinary for Texas, either. Why are people who died in office buildings in New York so much more important than Texas drivers?

    Or drivers in any state, for that matter?

    I don't know that possessing guns or AEDs would have helped.
