  •  Again, the data are lacking (0+ / 0-)

    It's very clear you're not actually writing about where you live - you're writing about the F-16.  You don't even provide basic comparatives for your supposedly high risk area.  You're using where you live and a narrow, deliberately deceptive set of data to spin your argument to appear that it's about where you live, not the fact that you simply don't like the "inconvenience" of the noisier F-16 in your backyard.

    Selective statistics is just sophisticated lying.

      find the fresh crater, go southeast a couple miles.

      As for basic comparatives, one stat that's unavailable is F-16 flight hours broken down by training location - and gee, I wonder why - that would complete a statistical probability calculation. Only total hours are released.

      But we do know that over 18 F-16's have crashed at Luke since 1998, doing the same maneuvers they do here.

      It doesn't take a genius to conclude there will be crashes here, in Wisconsin, so long as F-16's train here.
