Let’s filter fine fatal figures
SATURDAY, January 23 – It’s encouraging news, that’s for sure, and I was able to say so without a trace of sarcasm when I saw the news item put out on the website of my own organization, NOS News. ‘In 2009 the number of traffic fatalities continued to drop. The figure is now below 700. To be precise, the police registered 605 deaths.’ I feel the inclination to make a sarcastic remark about our protection forces, but I decide to let it pass.
