Heard an interesting interview with an MSU researcher on NPR this morning about looking at murder as an infectious disease.
A study in Newark, N.J., found that homicides committed over a quarter century spread out very much like an infectious disease epidemic. Using this information, cities might be able to predict when and where murders will occur.
Nothing like a huge government grant to help such complex and difficult research. I can take a drive around just about any big city and tell you where murder is more prevalent, too. I'll even chart it on a map, if you'd like. With colors. Now where's my $2.3 mil?
It was just a mistake;
I didn't mean to let them take away my soul.
Am I too old?
Is it too late?
Tom cruise can already predict murders.
After a thorough peer review process, I regret to inform you that the Program Committee has decided not to fund your proposal. You are not smart.

Heard the tail-end of the story this morning. Pretty interesting stuff. And that was even before I knew it was related to MSU. Even better!!

the school of criminal justice is among the best in the world at what they do...
The researcher has two degrees from UM. Less better?
I was just havin' fun. I'm sure the money is well spent and the research and findings will yield life-saving programs for the people stuck in the path of the epidemic.
Indeed. Why else would our society fund research?

The interesting part (IMO) to explore is at the end of the article when they talk about how certain places with all the risk factors seem to me immune and attempting to find out why and implement that in other areas.

Everybody makes a mistake or two from time-to-time.
you mean like how lots of cash cures aids?
just kidding...I agree with you.
