Yglesias has a good post on how a terrorist-finding program with a 10% error rate can produce a field of suspects that are 90% innocent.

In other news, Christie's dad told a very funny story over dinner last night about taking the gum from an MRE and tossing it in the candy bowl at work, only to find out later that the gum was designed to have a laxative effect. Alas, my research seems to indicate that the gum isn't really a laxative, though the rumor that it is has a long, long history.
