Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Angry at Statistics
Yesterday, we told you about "America's Most Miserable Cities," a list where Miami ranked ninth. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen finds these lists just as dumb as we do, and issued a statement about Forbes' latest.
"Sadly, the editors once again accept confusing statistics as opposed to actually visiting and getting a feel of our tropical paradise," her release read.
That's the thing, though -- as dumb as these lists are, they are based on statistics, and we believe it when Forbes cites the off-the-charts crime, corruption, and foreclosures of our tropical paradise. So instead of being Congress's leading hater of listacles, perhaps Ros-Lehtinen would serve her constituents better by championing measures in the House that would help reduce crime, corruption, and foreclosures.
