Before You Draw That Line

This isn't even remotely the proper way of thinking about correlation and causation. But it's how I think about it. Regardless ...

I see it happen every day in debates ranging from the serious (vaccinations, global warming, parenting, gun violence) to the relatively benign (celebrity, neighborhood gentrification) to the totally benign (sports).

I can be just as guilty of it as anyone. Thinking about it helps avoid doing it.
