The Killing of a Killer

My print column on the assassination of abortionist George Tiller is up.

May he rest in peace, even though many of his 60,000 victims rest in pieces.

Gil, until you refrain from getting the data for your columns from Bill O'Reilly, it will be hard to take them seriously. The 60,000 number is an absurdity that a moderately sentient second grader would understand is absurd.

H/T any number of sources:
"Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, so if Dr. Tiller's abortions were all legal, they would have been performed in the last 36 years. Sixty thousand divided by 36 is about 1,667 per year. If Dr. Tiller took 4 weeks of vacation, sick leave, or other non-working days each year, that means he performed about 35 abortions a week, or about one an hour (assuming a 9-to-5 day with an hour off for lunch)."
