Abusing Statistics

A friend writing under a pseudonym has a new blog about the use and abuse of statistics in the media. He's a good writer. Since he came to statistics (and the mathy end of everything) somewhat late compared to most math and science bloggers, I expect that his take will be quite interesting. He will likely also do a good job explaining some of the relevant ideas to less mathematical people. The latest entry is on how not to conduct surveys. The entry is worth reading.
