    A little light reading assignment for the coming week?

    I'll accept that homework assignment.

    Thank you for the link. Any particular pages or tables that we should pay close attention to?

    •  I used to comb through the CDC and Justice Dept (3+ / 0-)

      data bases and I approximately came to a lot of similar places. They put it together in one small report.

      Also I usually look at #s for fatalities where as they consider all crime and also non fatal injuries.

      They don't discuss suicide at all, and I think that's good. Suicide is a different issue, a mental health problem that affects oneself mostly, survivors to a much smaller extent.

      I'm actually looking forward to the studies from the CDC, hoping they will be presented in a non partisan statistical manner.
