There is Life-Giving Nuance in Looking Past the Numbers


Our Nation, indeed our World, is hungry for meta data and analytics and any cool sifting and winnowing process to help make some profits out of the proper application of those calculations! Be sure to take the time to stop and drill down past the averages and the standard deviations from the mean to see yourself and other human beings in the data. There is life-giving nuance in looking past the numbers to the individuals (datum) that were used to make up that data.
