  1. Scary! When you look at the countries whose rates are around what ours is expected to reach in 2010, you realize that if this goes on much longer, we’re looking at the third-worldization of the US. And when you consider the social unrest and corruption in countries with even higher rates, you realize what the implications are for the personal safety of people who live in those areas.
