    and I agree, to some extant, but my read was that the example used to illustrate the point was guilty of the same sin he/she was calling out in his/her comment.  The numbers they both cite may be "real", but without disclosure of the variables used in experimental/survey design or data analysis there is no way to discern whether a significant statistical relationship exists as used in their comment.  You know, application of the old lies, damn lies, and statistics quote.
