The One-Hour Rule
There's apparently no limit to gringo evil

Important point

I tell my students worried about the effects of "environmental poisons" on their health that they'd be better off worrying about the things they more directly control. I'll have a new study to cite, by Ralph Keeney:

A remarkable 55 percent of deaths for people age 15 to 64 can be attributed to decisions with readily available alternatives. In other words, most people are the agents of their own demise. That's a vast difference from a century ago, when, Keeney estimates, a scant 5 percent of deaths were brought on by personal decisions (infectious diseases account for most of the rest).
