i feel a letter to the editor coming on

From my local paper today:
The report blamed another 188 deaths on sudden infant death syndrome. More than half of those deaths were attributed to such risky behaviors as adults sharing beds with infants or mothers who smoke.

Fuck. I'm too lazy to write a letter to the editor and too pissed off to not. For the record, safely co-sleeping REDUCES the risk of SIDS. Safely means keeping pillows and covers away from the boo, and being sober when you crash with the baby. The carbon dioxide mamas exhale helps regulate baby's breathing and breastfeeding (often linked to cosleeping) reduces the risk further.

Edit: Here is the link to the article. So, I wrote an email and sent it. Here is the text:
