If this link doesn't work, and this one also doesn't work, then someone is trying to bury this story. As soon as I saw it, I wanted to get a link, the better not to bother with copypasta, but when I went back for it less than a minute later, it had vanished and I had to dive into archives to get it back again.
Here's the first paragraph anyway...
By Jonathan Saul
DUBLIN (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said on Tuesday Washington's support for the Palestinian Fatah group and the blocking of aid to Gaza were part of a mistaken policy aimed at dividing Palestinians.
Ok, so Jimmy Carter wasn't the best ever President, but is there anyone who's going to disagree that Bush is the worst ever - and by a country mile?
In other news, two weeks old now, but who cares about that anyway, the L.A. Times (from New York to L.A. - reminds me of a song I heard once when I was a kid...) had this to say in support of my aversion to porn and music download websites...
Whatever threat online pornography might pose to society's morals, online music might pose a bigger threat to society's computers.
A study scheduled to be released today found that about 9% of adult sites that turned up high in search-engine rankings had such PC-damaging problems or annoyances as spyware, adware and spam associated with them.
Yet searching for digital music was twice as risky — more than 19% of the sites produced by such queries were risky for computer users, according to the study by McAfee Inc., a Santa Clara, Calif.-based company that makes computer-security software.
Actually, that report reminds me of the replies I get from PayPal, Bank of America, Chase Bank and iwf.org when I send them notifications of interweb nastiness. I did get a bit of a grin after reading the first sentence, though.
We can see newsreel footage of all manner of carnage and killing, but the world caves in on itself if someone sees a pair of tits or some full on rumpy pumpy. What is the matter with some people?
Did Salman Rushdie come out of hiding and risk a drubbing to get his dubbing?
Eighteen years after the Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa calling on Muslims to kill him, a government minister in Pakistan (Religious Affairs Minister Ijaz ul-Haq) said yesterday that Rushdie's recent knighthood justified suicide bombing.
Suicide bombing of whom, where and, above all, WHY?
Oh, of course; ul-Haq is RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS MINISTER. These fucking imbeciles make me cringe for the 99% of muslims who wouldn't hurt anyone. Speaking of religious nutbags, I tripped over this little number yesterday.
