I’m So Bored I Decided To Read That Circumcision Is Slowly Dying In The U.S.

Am I the only guy that immediately gets queazy reading/discussing this crap? NY Times has the story:

The slide portrays a precipitous drop in circumcision, to just 32.5 percent in 2009 from 56 percent in 2006. The numbers are based on calculations by SDI Health, a company in Plymouth Meeting, Pa., that analyzes health care data; they do not include procedures outside hospitals (like most Jewish ritual circumcisions) or not reimbursed by insurance.
Andrew Kress, the chief executive of SDI Health, cautioned that the data had not yet been published and was still being analyzed, but he confirmed that the trend had been toward fewer circumcisions each year.

Always thought it was weird that the first thing people think when a little infant boy pops out is ‘great! now let’s chop a little part of his dick off!’
