Comments: More black & Hispanic kids fall out of buildings; in other news, Sky is blue

If I was living with small children in a multi-story building that had windows without screens, and the building management would not provide screens, I would go to the hardware store and buy a hammer, nails and a roll of wire. Then I would drive nails about 5 inches apart into the wall around the lower halves of the windows and weave wire back & forth and then up and down to make screens. When I moved out, the nails could be pulled out and the small holes spackled over.

"Young Latino and black children were twice as likely to be seriously hurt in a fall from a building than white children, the study found."

Hmmm, maybe white men can't jump, but they bounce better? ;)

They got funding for this? I must be doing something wrong in my career.

Lets have a funded study of why boogers get hard over time. It is equally important.
