another political moment, in the terminal, watching CNN

An anchor was interviewing some general about the elections in Iraq. He actually asked, paraphrased,

"[The military is out in force, keeping the peace, ensuring safety on voting day.] Instead of saying one roadside bomb went off in Iraq today, wouldn't it be better to say that 99% of the country didn't have a roadside bomb go off?"

Flabbergasted. Among the least of my concerns about that statement is the fact that 1% is a helluva lot of country.
