What Is Missing Is A Unit Of Time
sends us to the StrategyPage
for this headscratcher:
August 8, 2003: In the last four weeks, attacks on American troops have declined from about 40 a day to about three dozen. Defining what is an "attack" is sometimes difficult....
OK, three dozen per... day? A drop of ten percent, from forty to thirty-six, may be encouraging, but let's save the fanfare.
Or are we talking about a total of thirty-six in the last four weeks? The daily rate has fallen to a bit more than one, down from forty? Sounds like yet another of my Nasdaq holdings.
File this under "More confusion from, on, and about Iraq".
