The NYT is out with a front page story today announcing with great fanfare that half of the 250 accidental deaths of children each year are unreported.
How about what the CPC calls “the leading cause of death for young children? 390 deaths for children under fifteen? If it saves the life of just one child, shouldn’t we ban residential swimming pools? Doesn’t that carnage merit front page coverage on its own?
Or is there some other agenda at play here?
