    Homicides down in New York

    In New York, the nation's largest city, the homicide rate was down 3.6 percent, from 319 to 309 murders. Compare that to New Orleans, a city a fraction of New York's size that dropped from 673 murders in 2000 to 649 in 2001.

    Given its population of 8 million people, New York "has an astonishingly low homicide rate," says Professor Blumstein.

    But that would not be the case had the death toll from the Sept. 11th attacks been figured into the crime statistics. According to an analysis done by Gov. George Pataki's office, had the 2,823 people killed at the World Trade Center been included, the state's homicide rate would have jumped 312 percent. The city's rate would have spiraled even higher.

    It's pretty scary when you clock those figures in your head...almost one person per day is murdered here. It's a percent too. Only ten less people got killed? Whoo Hoo.

    And 312%?!...

    People don't get killed in Seattle, because crazy people just kill themselves
