Somalia vs. U.S.A.

One of my daughters read these statistics for me this Christmas holiday while we were at Lake Tahoe

US has the largest number of cars per person: 1/2.

Somalia has the smallest number of cars per person: 1/1000 (Or was it 1/10,000 ? I'll have to check when the book returns form my daughter's school desk!)

A recent article offering an alternative view on the situation in Somalia can be found here.
