Sunday Saying - Statistics

"We must keep in mind the story of 
the statistician who drowned 
while trying to wade across a river 
with an average depth of four feet. 

That is to say, 
in a culture that reveres statistics, 
we can never be sure 
what sort of nonsense will lodge in people's heads.
- Neil Postman
