    Murder in Canada - Off Topic

    Do you read the quotations under Anselm's postings?  The latest was:
    
    
    That's like comparing the total number of murders in the Vatican in 1998 (3)
    with those in Canada (about 183,000), and concluding that Canada is 61,000
    times as dangerous a place.
              -- Rick Moen, on comparing Windows and Linux "security patch counts"
    
    
    In  defence of Canada, the number of murders in Canada in 2003 was
    548, or 1.73 per 100,000 of population.  The numbers for 1998 would be
    similar.
    
    
    Regards,
