Pulitzer Prize winner Gary Webb, the journalist who broke the original
In 2004, Webb who remained active as an independent journalist reportedly, committed suicide by shooting himself in the head - twice. Webb joined three other men - authors Danny Casolaro and J.H. Hatfield and artist Mark Lombardi - who "committed suicide" after getting too close to Bush family secrets.
A mathematician was asked to calculate the numerical odds of four American men who all were interested in this subject committing suicide and this is what he said:
"Examining the male U.S.suicide rate for recent years, we can extrapolate a conservative estimate of 17 male suicides per 100,000 people, or 0.017%. The odds of 4 specific, male biographers committing suicide would be the 4th power of 17/100000, or 8.3521 4.913 x 10^-17...roughly 1 chance 10,000,000,000,000,000. About as good a definition of impossible as you can get.
"A person would stand a better chance of playing the Canadian lottery 6/49 exactly twice in one's lifetime and winning the grand jackpot BOTH TIMES! (That is, picking 6 numbers out of 49 possible numbers and matching all 6 numbers out of 6 random draws, on 2 separate occasions, and having only purchased two Canadian lottery tickets ever.)
"This calculation should be regarded as a conservative estimate: the actual odds against such a 'coincidence' would be much greater. For example, if any of the biographers were female, the odds would be even greater."
