WASHINGTON -- The Census Bureau said Monday it is being watchful about potential dangers to its workers -- ranging from anti-government sentiment to everyday accidents -- after six died in auto incidents in the last week.
At a news briefing, Census Bureau director Robert Groves said the traffic deaths were of concern since temporary census workers are fanning out in neighborhoods around the country to conduct interviews until mid-July.

“Never be in a hurry to stick your nose into other people’s business”.
I’ve always said that.
Has anyone seen any white census workers? I’m just wondering. I haven’t seen any yet.
Obama inherited this problem. It’s Cheney’s fault.
It’s starting to add up.
Saw one today....she came to our door just asking for directions to a house number on our street...I tried to be nice....plus I know 3 others who are working the census and are white...
Just more censusless fatalities caused by those who don’t want to be counted. There is definitely got to be a consipracy behind these accidents.
Too busy talking on their cell phones or texting.

The one that “caught” me was Asian..........the two that came and didn’t catch me were white.
I’m one and most of my class of 14 were.
One came to my mom’s house a while back to do the GPS thing. It was pouring rain and I spoke to him from inside her house while he got drenched.
That’s so funny, I forgot to laugh.
The census workers have been put on hold as their government hand held computers costing 700million DON’T WORK!!!! This was onQuinn & Rose this am
what was supposed to be funny?
6 out of how many? A few hundred thousand? Seems statistically normal.
I wonder if it would be bad manners to sic my terrier on the Census workers? Ok, not sic, just not remove him from the room. His bark is quite loud and disruptive. Besides, I*ve given them all the info 3 am required to give them ... the total number of people who live there and a contact number.
>>”Ok, not sic, just not remove him [Terrier] from the room.”<<
Please tell me that you’re not entertaining the thought of inviting them into your house. I don’t care if it’s raining like hell and there is lightning striking within 10 feet of them. They ain’t coming into my house or even on my porch.
“2 people live here. Now get the hell off my property”
My prayers and condolences go out to two fellow West Texas families who lost loved ones in a HORRIBLE wreck in Midland, Texas on Friday. One was a retired South Plains College employee from Levelland and the other a young single mom from Brownfield. They were census workers returning to Lubbock from the Midland census office.
Yep, one stopped here the other day. Seemed like your average Joe. He was cool and didn’t push me to answer questions I didn’t want to answer.
Were they driving Toyotas?
Yeah, when I look in the mirror I do. My whole class of 12 is white. Our big boss came in from Kansas City today, I made a bet with myself she would be of another hue. I was correct. If she wasn't an ACORN member, she could play one on tv.
I also wanted to add that I am shocked and appalled by the waste I’m seeing. I’m thinking of writing an article or sending the details to a conservative writer so others can see how bad this is. Almost everyone in my class is a former government worker and thinks nothing of wasting tax dollars. They laugh about it while I sit there fuming.
Oh, HELL NO! I have given them the number of people that live at my residence. Since my elderly parents live with me, they have instructions that IF one of these gov’t snakes come slithering up to our front door, give out my cell phone number and have the snakes call me.
I was just wondering if I would have committed some cardinal southern sin by letting the Rottie in a terrier-mix’s body continue to snarl at the front door. It would be quite amusing to have them attempt to ask questions over William Wallace’s fierce, persistent bark.
There is no excuse for bad manners...even those directed at loathesome government types. Remember those of us on the right are better than the cesspool dwellers on the left.
My brother had a lady in his Sunday School class who went to a two-week training class to be a Census Worker. Their team went to a neighborhood and finished in a half day. After that they were told they would not be needed anymore.
