    I love when people play with statistics. A report came out a few years ago that showed the % of deaths per ER/ERadmit patient at each of the area hospitals. The one closest to us got the worst rating. People were freaked and vowed never to go there. If you looked closely at the breakdown the category that really skewed things was cardiac deaths.

    DUH! The community that hospital serves has an extraordinarily high number of nursing homes and senior facilities. At one point over 50% of our town was over 65. Add to that most of the facilities around here do not want deaths to occur on their turf, so even if the resident is ice cold they call an ambulance and send them to the ER rather than call in the doc who can pronounce. I was told by one nurse that unless you are on hospice you WILL NOT officially die in the nursing home. So is it any wonder that the hospital that serves this population has a slightly higher death rate?

    Earlier today, I was out buying marshmallows (not for me), and this lady, who wasn't exactly what you'd call healthy-looking, said 'they're all fattening' as she walked past. Very sage wisdom coming from someone whose cart is full of pasta, sugar-free candy and a giant jar of sugary, soybean oil-filled peanut butter.

    Well, to be fair, given the contents of her cart she sounds like a subject matter expert on things that are not good for you.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I like to imagine her as some sort of self-destructive vigilante - she is concerned for the well-being of all of us, but the sins of her past do not permit her to partake in the flighty pleasures of good-health and vegetables

    I like a lot of terrible foods, but marshmallows just don't do much for me. If I ever post about buying Ben & Jerry's for someone else, then you'll know it's a lie.

    maybe she was referring to the contents of her cart? she just wanted to reach out to you and admit her guilt.

    That. Right there. That is what's wrong with us as a human race. That you can hold on so tight to a belief when you don't even know WHERE you got the damn thing, and you have NO proof or research or anything to tell you it's any more true than any other crap someone says somewhere.

    As someone with a good education/research background, working with people with similar backgrounds, it amazes me how easily my co-workers buy into CW. I'm the one who gets branded as the conspiracy theorist-go figure. Maybe someday, someone will see the irony...
