    random, not particualrly helpful fact?  You mean a fact taht was accounted for?

    The Munich Re researchers took pains make figures from different years comparable by accounting for socioeconomic changes and the growth of urban areas. Even after normalization, they found, annual losses exceeded $10 billion in seven years since 1990. The worst year for damage between 1970 and 1989 was 1974, but even then the toll remained below $10 billion.
    or are you saying that the US GDP has grown so that's all that matters, really?

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion
