The Numbers

I've always liked data. My favorite paperback book is still the Pocket World in Figures, published every year by the Economist. For, unlike politicians, figures rarely lie. Yes, figures can be manipulated, but the raw data is usually right on.

So I was quite happy to read Citizen K's piece on Senator Gregg. Apparently, the good Senator assumes that his constituents and 'Fellow Americans' are completely ignorant and can be duped by him at will. And, included in this revealing piece, are the links to healthcare data that should make the Senator so embarrassed that he resigns in shame. But it doesn't happen. Obviously, he cannot be shamed…
