April 24, 2007

This graphical breakdown from the NYTimes of the demographics behind the 81 (!!) daily gunshot related fatalities in America in 2004 (the most recent year for which stats are available) is fascinating; being a white male nearing 40, the most frightening stat may be the huge uptick in sucides in the white male 40 and older group.  Of all the people I thought might try and shoot me, I never thought to guard against the enemy within.
