Speaking of infant mortality, the CIA World Fact Book has ratings for different countries, and believe me, the US record is nothing to be proud of. The US ranks number 46 among the nations with a rate of 6.26 deaths per 1000 live births. We rank right between Guam and Faroe Islands. The better countries have infant mortality rates well under half of ours.
