    reading people making jokes about the deaths of little kids is beyond the pale. After I said something on one the diarist stopped joking himself, but I imagine it still goes on in comments.

    Thankfully accidental firearm fatalities continue their steep decline, but any death is one too  many. I only wish parents were as careful with water.

      shot themselves or others while cleaning their guns or what have you.

      You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

        so to not jinx myself.

        592 altogether in 08 (by my chart)
        The next one higher was machinery at 693 which is close to home, an old friend's husband dropped a 100 gallon water tank (full) on his chest from the bucket on his tractor this year and broke most of his ribs, punctured lungs, broke a leg, and spent a total of 98 days in the ICU, but made it, at the young age of 64.

        1400 from natural/environmental which would be heat stroke, or freezing or getting eaten by bears I guess. Interesting that choking is up, the elderly maybe?

        I have an interest in preventing accidents from years working out of helicopters and also technical climbing. Often thoughtful habits can push the odds considerably in your favor.

      And we finally get to why you've really removed yourself from the discussion.

      I knew it would come out eventually.
