Subject: RE: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
Please let us know when your link goes to a PDF, Rapparee. Also, when connecting us to such a delicious compilation of catastrophes, please be specific as to what you want us to peruse. Otherwise, some of us will be pondering it for the rest of the day;-)

Some of us, for instance, will observe that while homicide is not one of the leading causes of death over all, it is in the top ten among young people, particularly white and black men.

Some of us will also puzzle over the fact that for whites of both sexes, at least from 15 or so on, there are always a lot more suicides than homicides (often two to three times as many), where as for blacks, of both sexes, it is reversed, and the homicides tend to greatly out number the suicides.
