Yet another great mathematical-result-explained-for-the-non-specialist piece by @EricaKlarreich:


(My 2020 wish: the @NYTimes decides to have a Numeracy Editor, offers her the job, and she takes it. Low chance, but one can hope? https://www.rants.org/2019/04/proposing_a_numeracy_editor/)

Maybe that would be a waste of her talents, since a Numeracy Editor would mostly fix mistakes in others' pieces. But there's room to turn it into a platform for public discussion of quantitative reporting. E.g., why all COVID-19 stats should be reported in per capita form, etc.
