    A word of caution. Yes the numbers are the same, that does not make them correct. He could easily be using the same bad source, and I suspect he is. I don't have a reference at hand but I'm reasonably sure that somewhere in the past few months I've seen these same numbers and they were debunked. As Mark Twain said, 'There are lies, damned lies and statistics.' If i'm wrong I will apologize, the only cost is a little more research to get the right number.

    My only concern is that before people fire off letters to the legislature we get the numbers right. Our opponents like nothing more than finding bogus statistics and using them to invalidate our argument no matter how logically correct it is.

  3. You are welcome. My letters to all my state senators and representatives went out this morning. I suggest you al do likewise. I'll bet some of the democrat reps my state has have dart boards on their office walls with my name in the bulls-eye.
