Somehow, someway...

U.S. records drastic decline in death rate

...there will crop up a news report that sees this as a failure, and in it George Bush will be blamed. Probably for the loss of income in the funeral business.

I also imagine somehow it will be figured out how to add the subhead, "Women, Minorities, Children Hardest Hit."

How can there possibly be a drop in the death rate? We've been eating all those transfats and some of us don't wear sunscreen every time we leave the house?

Still 100%, right?

Jordana, don't worry about stuff like that--it's that there global warming that's gonna get us all.

And yes, Steevil--you have found the downside in all of this. Despite the progress made in forestalling the inevitable, the inevitable is still inevitable. I blame George Bush.
