Dear Mr. Kos: As you may be aware, on Friday, Saturday, and part of today (Sunday, Decemberr 23, 2012) the front page of the Huffington Post carried links to news articles about all the gun related deaths that have occurred since the shootings at Sandy Hook. Sadly, this count topped 100 this past Friday morning. The headline reminded me of something the old Milwaukee Sentinel used to do about 40 or 50 years ago. On the bottom of the front page every day was a little box with the number of people who had been killed in traffic accidents in Wisconsin from the first of the year to the date of publication, along with the number for the same period from the previous year. Every year saw the count grow higher and it was a very subtle but effective reminder of a very serious problem.
