6. I agree with this, definetly.
lack of implied control is what is scary with flying. Having a discussion with people @ work, thanks.

3. Two squirrelly sources agree,
so I'll post:

http://www.theepochtimes.com/news/6-4-24/40658.html
http://www.pritzkerlaw.com/Traffic_Fatalities /

43,200 for the US.

I could probably track down the source being used, but googling's easy enough.

5. Are you trying to invalidate that right-wing argument...
Y'know, how some of them say that "not many troops have been killed in Iraq as compared to the number of traffic deaths in the US every year? (I always thought that argument was like comparing apples and oranges)

8. I always ask them how many have to die before they realize
what a fraud Bush's war is.
