Your taxes at work (again)

As a taxpayer, a portion of my taxes are directed towards funding the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). As I mentioned on this blog on July 31st, I regularly watch Planet America, ABC News 24's weekly review of American politics.

One regular segment of the program is "United Stats of America." On average, due to gun violence and road deaths, male life expectancy in the United States is on average 2.2 years less than in comparable countries. The third cause of this lower life expectancy is drug poisonings. Rather unfortunately, I noticed that the word poisonings was misspelt as poisinings in this graphic.
