To the editor:
You probably missed the article last week ("Traffic deaths climb to 15-year high," Journal-World, Aug. 23), as we have become so inured to the automobile's gruesome toll. On average, nearly 120 Americans are killed every day in this country while paying homage to the four-wheel god. Yet this is just the first course of a very large and bloody meal. It does not include the tens of thousands who are maimed and crippled by this destructive deity, nor the even greater number who are killed and wounded ensuring that this beast never grows thirsty.
