    I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.

    So I’ve been ignoring this DR blather since I was skeptical there was anything statistically valid going on but was too lazy to look into that. Welp someone has: https://slate.com/technology/2019/07...overblown.html

    Our trip to the DR for a reunion in February just got canceled because people were freaking out. I was trying to tell them it's probably the safest time in history to go there now but no dice. People.

    Just as well. So many nicer islands than the DR. I went there for a destination wedding a few years ago. Outside the resort, what a shithole.

    meh, it's a volcanic island in the Caribbean that's relatively poor. People are nice, food is fresh, & there're enough things to keep you busy for weeks.

    How about recalculating the data as all 2nd and third world destinations vs 1st world instead of DR versus other 3rd world resorts? Pretty sure there's plenty of bad booze, DDT, and drug gangs to go around and that's why 12 deaths in DR within that time frame isn't as significant. DR is just the most recent poster child for what the risks are all over 2nd and 3rd world vacation destinations.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!
