CDC: why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

My dad became a statistic—merely one of the roughly 100,000 Americans whose deaths are caused or influenced by infections picked up in hospitals. One hundred thousand deaths: more than double the number of people killed in car crashes, five times the number killed in homicides, 20 times the total number of our armed forces killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Another victim in a building American tragedy.

Once again we are hearing the drumbeat of guns as medical/epidemiology problem and that we need more “scientific & medical” studies by the CDC to control “gun deaths.” Yeah right! That would be like asking Pol Pot or Stalin to study Columbine.
