    Are you kidding? The USA aren't even consistently below 1000 *deaths* per day yet.[/QUOTE]
    Yeah, that'd be 20,000 cases. I'd be interested in seeing this chart without NY and NJ. Those two states...

    Failure to yeild during a possibility of fatal action implies intent to continue.[/QUOTE]

    Just because you don't like it doesn't make it dishonest.
