Empty the nation's pools!  APR 06 2009

From November 2007 but still relevant: Odds of Dying in a Terrorist Attack.

You are six times more likely to die from hot weather than from a terrorist attack

You are 87 times more likely to drown than die in a terrorist attack

You are 1048 times more likely to die from a car accident than from a terrorist attack

You are 12 times more likely to die from accidental suffocation in bed than from a terrorist attack

You are eight times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist

I guess when you're the President, it's just not that impressive to say that you protected the nation's populace from accidental suffocation in bed.
