Osama vs. Bambi

Today's sign that the "War on Terror" is way overblown.

A study for the insurance industry estimated that deer kill about 150 people a year in car crashes nationwide and cause $1 billion in damage. Granted, deer aren't stalking us, and they come out worse in these collisions - but it's still true that in a typical year, an American is less likely to be killed by Osama bin Laden than by Bambi.
I knew it! Can't trust those garden munching, highway hopping, four legged terrorists.
