THE GOVERNMENT AND MEDIA SAFETY NANNIES are hyperventilating (as usual) about Hurricane Matthew this morning. For some perspective, consider these numbers:
Hurricane Katrina killed < 2,000 people in 2005;
Traffic accidents kill ~ 30,000 annually;
Homicides take ~ 16,000 lives annually; and
Suicides account for ~ 32,000 lives annually.
When you watch your 'hurricane nannies' on television, remember it's not about keeping you safe; it's about keeping them in control.
