16. Brings to mind Mark Twain's aphorism that there are 'lies,
damned lies and statistics.'

Rather than call it 'poverty,' why not call it 'subsistence living'? Becuase even with food stamps, UI, WIC and so on, these people are 'subsisting'. They are not thriving or prospering.

Fuck the NYTimes. It lost all credibility with its coverage of the run-up to Operation Shocking and Awful. It has the lives of 1,000,000+ Iraqis on its hands to answer for and should just STFU.
