Excerpt:

DETROIT The first extensive snowstorm of the season deteriorated as it moved east Friday, however not before it disposed of even more than 1. 5 feet of snow in Michigan and made travel hard in the Great Lakes region. A semitrailer went out of control on a bridge slick with snow, barreled down an embankment and struck a concrete barrier in Indiana, killing the driver. In Michigan, a school bus holding six youngsters crashed into a tree that had fallen throughout a road in near white-out conditions. There were no injuries in that wreck. The storm, part of a system that began in the Rockies earlier in the week, was condemned for deaths in a minimum of five states.

Key:

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
