Finally, a NY Times Infographic that is Meaningful

I like how the NY Times felt they needed to add an propaganda graph infographic in the middle of this article about how the San Bernardino terrorists had been talking about attacking for several years, yet no one thought to turn them in, just to reassure the public that Muslims are no more likely to commit acts of terror than anyone else.

See, look, Muslims have committed less than half the terrorist murders in the US since 9/11! See? No problem!

So I decided to add just a bit of context to the infographic to put those numbers -- meant to reassure us that Muslims are no more likely to be terrorists than, say, a Presbyterian -- in perspective.
