    France Formally Requests US Military Aid for Mali Invasion

    “the northern Malian desert poses little threat as it is and could become a magnet for terrorists if the US gets too heavily involved”

    I’m not sure how anyone could seriously consider increasing intervention there. Did they forget Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam?

    “Seventy mass shootings have occurred in the U.S. since 1982, leaving 543 dead. These crimes were horrific, but 564,452 other homicides took place in the U.S. during the same period. Mass shootings scarcely represent 0.1 percent of all murders. When talking about the problem of guns in our society, it is easy to lose sight of the worst violence and to become fixated on symbols of violence.”

    Similar to the broken-window economic fallacy – people focus on what’s obvious, and they miss all that is hidden, even though those hidden facts are far more important.
