Feeling low, and couldn't be happier
Nation's Crime Rate Hits 32-Year Low
If you'll remember, last year at about this time, it was a 30-year low. We've gone even lower.
(Flashback to 9/2005: U.S. crime rate holds at 30-year low)
Unemployment is low too: Bureau of Labor and Statistics Monthly Unemployment Numbers for August 2006.
Murder Rates are also lower: Murder Rate Hits 40-Year Low
And, Abortion rates are lower.
We're hitting a lot of lows these days, and they're all good. Of course, good news is no news at all. Good news goes under-reported. And of course, no one will think to blame Bush.
By the way, given that homicide is any death by a gun, one must wonder if these gun victimizations that are jacking up the numbers include stories of civilian self defense.
For example, does Kennya Johnson's use of a firearm count in those numbers?
