41. I don't really care whether anyone wants to use the new Mass Shooting measure...

 

But to say it is increasing massively as some commentators contend without a basis for seeng that phenomenon is propagandizing.

ON EDIT:

I Googled "Mass Shootings Increasing" (I have trouble linking on this cheapo tablet), and found a spate of articles saying they are, and some which say otherwise. Controversy centers on dicey definitions, poor histories of shooting data, and little to support the contention of an increased rate over the long trend. Of particular interest is "Are Mass Shootings Really on the Rise -- Or do We Just Think They Are," by Jeanna Birch, writing in Yahoo, Nov. 10, 2015.

On edit: What's a little time warp between friends? Edited for one century. Still at it.
