I have not, nor will I ever, put suicides vs homicides on a steelyard. But I’m curious, since you will, how many suicides is a homicide worth? Are kids worth extra? Are old people worth less? Give me some multipliers to work with. It could lead to a fascinating exercise.

What about different kinds of homicide? Sometimes I get the impression that the media is already doing this, given the coverage disparities.
