Charlie, in theory, I agree with your criticism of mid-block crossing, BUT often times it IS safer depending on the sight angles - because you have cars coming at you from only one direction. In a crosswalk those turning left come up from behind you in addition to those turning right across in front of you. It's scary, especially if you have kids in tow or whatever. Nearly half of all those killed are in crosswalks.
