It was all over the news this morning. The 300,000,000th American arrived today. The Today Show and the local news were both at hospitals in Los Angeles because statistically that’s where the 300,000,000th American would be born; however, what they neglected to tell you was that no one will ever know who the actual milestone man, or woman, is. It could be an immigrant or a baby, as the LA Times points out. It’s all guess work and statistics. Why didn’t the Today Show tell you that? Because a baby being born is a heck of a lot cuter story.
