THE COUNTRY CORNER

USA

There is a dog bite epidemic in the United States. There are almost 5 million victims annually (from 75 million dogs)-- about 2% of the entire population. 800,000 need medical attention. 1,000 per day need treatment in hospital emergency rooms. Approximately 26 die per year. Most of the victims who receive medical attention are children, half of whom are bitten in the face. Dog bite losses exceed $1 billion per year, with over $300 million paid by insurance.


USA

My mailbox is being flooded with mail concerning gas prices and illegal immigrants. To boycott oil companies or not; to provide amnesty to illegal immigrants or not, etc. Since I have become jaded to the various solutions proposed by the Republicans, Democrats, Sierra Club, ACLU, etc. I have elected to solve the problems as they affect me. It solves both my gas and illegal immigrant problems.
I have hired illegal immigrants to push my car. They're plentiful and cheaper than buying gas. Then I pay them in Pesos so they have to go home to spend it.
I love it when a plan comes together.

WORLD

It took all of human history until 1800 for the world’s population to reach its first billion. Now we add a new billion nearly every dozen years. As the global total swells to nearly 9 billion by 2050, the social and environmental strains will be enormous.
