A while ago we had a discussion here about the use of statistics ---
particularly, Type II error rates.  It turns out that /Science News/ has
a pretty good article on statistics and its limitations
It's accessible to the layman: it might be a little much to swallow in
places, but by and large if you survived high school math you'll survive
the article.

you), then C&P this link:,_Its_Wrong
