A good numeracy check

I missed this, but thanks to Nicole at A Capital Idea for the pointer.

The Wall Street Journal online has started a feature, The Numbers Guy. Should be required reading each week for reporters and editors. The latest is on dubious stats about lost cell phones and similar items in taxis ... and the difficulties of getting good polling numbers in Iraq (which is just a good primer overall on polling).
