Neil deGrasse Tyson’s tweet... yikes!
Even if he’s right from a strictly scientific and statistical point of view, it not the right time for such a tweet.

The US must admit they have a gun problem. This is not normal.

If anyone is wondering, here is the tweet.
In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings.

On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose…

500 to Medical errors
300 to the Flu
250 to Suicide
200 to Car Accidents
40 to Homicide via Handgun

Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.

I had a very good conversation on Chapo Trap House about the horrors of suburban architecture so uh it has some value.
