US crime rates

ok
back in the
saddle again

there's lots
of talk about
the women and men
dying in Iraq

now that got me to
thinking

how many
people are killed
on our american
streets?

so i went to
google
and looked it up

here's the US crime rates
from 1960 to 2005

notice please
how
as our population grows
so does crime

no surprise
really
when you read
From Warfare to Welfare

and isn't that interesting
how those two words
both end in 'fare'

when they are nothing but fair!

**

and now for something completely different : Laura Bush

Thanks for coming by last night.

"back in the saddle again"

*snickers*

Yup, a lot of drivers get killed. It's just a lot of monkeys screwing though.

I didn't see your birthday post until this morning.

Happy Birthday. Hugs.

I'm gonna have to register to read that article on crime stats. But I did read the one on Laura Bush. Oh please.
So glad you had a happy B-day. But you're right, after a while, we gotta climb back up in that saddle.

Here's hoping your saddle is soft and comfy. Boy, 1980 was a big year for murder - double today's figures. As for Laura, she just goes from one deadly incident to another and finally marries one.

Happy Birthday, AZ! =) I _think_ I barely missed you last night; I'm still fuzzy. . .+)

Nice post.

("and isn't that interesting

Did you mean when they have nothing to with fair?

Sorry... A wee bit confused... But what's new? :>)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

(late...sorry)

People will never be able to get along in peace, I'm afraid.

Glad you entered this info. So many causes going on in the world. Hard to focus on one, the other takes you by surprise. Thanks.
