Our government’s unhealthy addiction – Brospar Daily News

Although I try to eat a fairly balanced diet, I have been known to enjoy delicious Krispy Kreme donuts from time to time. In fact, I recently bought salad sides at the grocery store when the donut delivery guy showed up. I impulsively grabbed a six-pack as he piled freshly filled boxes near the self-service checkout line. When I got home, Laura took a quick look and, after shaking her head at my seemingly irresponsible behavior, asked me if I wanted to share.

While enjoying donuts, I read a news article in which a national politician boasted that government spending had fallen 2% in the last 12 months, as if they had accomplished some highly commendable miraculous feat. I almost choke when I think of the inappropriate use of statistics in such a statement. It reminds me of the old adage: “Statistics don’t lie, but all liars use statistics.” To prove the point, let me skip to the partially eaten donut that’s in front of me.
