The week in words (Or: Can a few represent the many? #column)

'In the past few years 200 muslims committed terrorist attacks, worldwide!'

-'Yes, and every single day 25,000 people die of starvation. What's your point?'

'That every muslim actually is a terrorist because those 200 muslims represent all muslims!'

-'But 300 muslims prayed for the souls of the people killed by Omar Mateen in front of that nightclub were he emptied his rifle.'

'That may be, but 300 muslims do not represent all muslims!'

On a lighter note: Hillary Clinton is unable to recover 32,000 of her private emails, said to contain 'private' information. Republicans however, did much, much better: the Bush-Cheney administration lost 22 million emails. But, of course - that's totally different.
