Look at Red mortality rates too

From the January 2005 Harper’s Index:

  • Average number of suicides per 100,000 residents in states carried by President Bush in November: 13.5
  • Average number in states carried by John Kerry: 9.9

and:

  • Hours after Kerry conceded that a New Yorker posted a personal ad seeking a Bush supporter for a “fair, physical fight”: 5
  • Number of people that volunteered within twenty-four hours: 3
  • Number who asked to watch: 9

No replies expected, I just thought others might get a kick out of this too. But as the first poster, I’d like to express a welcome for equal-opportunity venting.
