Macbeth the Usurper

9/11

Every 9/11, I look at the death statistics.

Once again this year, deaths due to car accidents have far outweighed death due to terrorism. When are we going to start our war against transportation? There's still lots of smoking deaths. When are we going to start a war against smoking? The cancer deaths shame all the numbers above. How about cancer? Can we get war-level funding for cancer?
