    Are your numbers correct? Elsewhere I’m reading that the death toll and number injured is much higher.

    The religious world is going mad: Pope Fever in the US and now this completely preventable nonsense. The mind reels at the possibilities…if all of the money and manpower expended on these events were put toward solving real global problems instead of living out ancient fairy tales.

    DougSlug, how can you compare “Pope Fever” to hundreds of people dying in a stampede?

    The Saudis really need to get their act together…..every few years, you hear about this sort of thing during the hajj.

    It’s obvious that the “custodians” of Mecca don’t place a very high premium on human life.
