Look at the spike on that!

From Resource Shelf, font of all manner of information goodness, I get the Google 2003 stats page URL, which includes a graphic of the search volumes on iraq over the first half of the year.

No scale for the y-axis - but the spike on the first day of hostilities on March 19 is striking, to say the least. The text says it more than doubled - but that must be compared with the previous day; compared with the average of the first two months of the year, it looks more like ten times higher. And May looks small, and well below February.

The lack of a scale is something of a bugger in making sense of it, though...
