Birth and Death rate news

None of these articles are particluarly funny on their own, but to see them the same day is ironic, if nothing else. On the one hand we have a declining birthrate and on the other, an increase in the death rate (from car accidents) At the same time as the rate of death from car accidents, we have news of a low accident rate from drunk driving.

So, the population is getting old and shrinking, possibly from car accidents; but at least the drivers having the accidents are more likely to be sober!
