First, if an inflated figure is being used, why not correct it? Why so upset about it being corrected? Next, as to the axe, I grew up and currently live in New York City. Every group here demands the status of Designated Victim; the normal procedure is to trot out the series of injustices done My Group which entitle My Group to be preferential treatment. I always assume that the injustices are magnified whenever possible. Therefore when I saw the figure six million and heard the steady refrain that under no circumstances could the figure be questioned, I know it was padded.
