One great quote a solution doth not make!


“A single death is a tragedy; the death of thousands is a statistic.” *

* At a minimum, the quote has been traced back to 1759. My favorite is Kurt Tucholsky, a journalist in Germany in 1925…“Der Tod eines Menschen: das ist eine Katastrophe. Hunderttausend Tote: das ist eine Statistik!”
