The original poster trying to say this simple example would not work in a
nuclear power plant. Or something like that. I would say that the EXAMPLE as
presented did not address the priority. The table had multiple information.
It was not misleading. The information was correct. It was well-labeled. The
presenter sets the audience up so that folks are just dying to pop out of
their chairs. That's another story. If your audience can understand how to
read a table, in this situation, it's a good choice for presentation.
