Social capital "factoids" from the Saguaro Seminar

The Saguaro Seminar is headquartered at the Kennedy School of Government, right next door to the Ethos Roundtable's customary meeting place.

I was browsing through the seminar's web site, and came upon a page devoted to social capital "factoids." Here's a sample:

    Joining one group cuts your odds of dying over the next year in half. Joining two groups cuts it by three quarters.

What a great excuse to join the Ethos Roundtable! Our next meeting is on December 19th. If you stick around and attend the Boston 501 Tech Club, which meets immediately after the Ethos Roundtable, you can easily boost your life expectancy in the next year by another 25%.
