So what is the death rate per 100,000 for convenience store clerks?  I 
have never seen any stats to base a judgement on.  I tend to think it is 
not that dangerous, since it makes the front page every time one gets 
murdered.  The exceptional thing about the loggers getting killed in the 
slide is not that they got killed, it's that the big city media paid any 
attention.  The most a dead logger usually gets is an obit in the back 
pages of some small town newspaper.
