The Dailyish News Round-Up
Europe Praises Steel Tariffs Repeal - A follow-up on this story. My favourite part: "US Trade Representative Robert Zoellick said the tariff decision had been made independently of the EU retaliation threat." Yeah, right. Of course it was.
Pictures Of Russian Train Blast - Does anyone else experience the same type of consumer-voyeurism that I get whenever pictures like this are published? Because it is do distant from me, and I am in no danger, I tend to look at the pictures for the sake of looking. It's like they are not real.
An Arresting Sight - Another article about the number of arrests under the Terrorism Act 2000 vs the number of convictions under the Act. It also highlights the abuse of police resources in arresting these terrorist "suspects". Plus, the author is a fellow at King's College.
ITV Reporter Attacks Military 'Spin' - Another response to the alleged shooting of 54 Iraqis by US troops. Very revealing, and I guess that fog of war still hasn't lifted.
Woman Is Trampled At Wal-Mart - All for some ultra-cheap DVD players. The best part of the story? "We want her to come back as a shopper," said Wal-Mart spokesman Karen Burk.
