Lies, damn lies, and - statistics from St. Louis.

Okayfine - The "Weather Underground" (now part of weather.com) site is listing St. Louis City as having 505 fatalities due to the 'Rona.
 
The City Administration's site? 586.
 
Why the huge difference?
 
Keep in mind that the administration doesn't bother to send prosecutors to murder trials, etc... And is a few dozen points on the far side of "fully woke."

Meh.  That's only a 16% lie.   I've seen worse.

There is no proof without evidence.
There is no evidence without investigation.
There is no investigation without suspicion.
Suspicion without proof is paranoid.
All nicely wrapped up, right?
