More Journalistic Detritus

Here's more from that organ of organs, Pravda:

Rabid badger attacks Russian woman

I wonder of they'd have mentioned it if it had been a Georgian woman.

Bush, Cheney and Rice; Hitler, Himmler and Goebbels

Ahh... Well, I was wondering if that 'opinion' piece was maybe written by the Russian woman above, who refused anti-rabies shots and subsequently went on to write this. But then I found out that it was signed by one 'Timothy BANCROFT-HINCHEY'. I wonder if he worked for the NYT or WP at some stage; whose op-eds more-than-just-occasionally exhibit similarly intemperate extremes of vitriol—or, some might argue, support for the proposition that, contrary to medical belief and universal assumption, not everybody does have a brain. Or maybe Timothy BANCROFT-HINCHEY is a pseudonym for Michael MOORE? But then again, that feeds into the no-brainer theory. The world might be making sense after all.

Meanwhile, on the Western front you'll find this:

Study Finds Flies Can Anticipate, Elude Swats

Ha!

Ancient Amazon Actually Highly Urbanized

Another antideluvian myth bites the dust. Suburbia in the Amazon. What else will they find out?
