I wish I was kidding

I must publicly complain about the crap that has been published on cnn.com lately. Try living abroad and keeping up with the news at home; the important political issues affecting the U.S. today are hard to find. Here is a small selection of the most recent articles CNN editors felt was necessary to publish on their front page:

Boy, 11, kicks hawk in face to save his puppy (December 12, 2006)

or this:

Is the Brangelina baby cuter than a panda cub? (December 15, 2006)

You may think that global warming is an important issue that deserves coverage. But the latter question was so vital to the CNN editors that it prompted a daily poll:

Which do you think is cuter, babies or panda cubs?
-Babies
-Panda cubs


ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT WE VOTED IN AN IDIOT FOR PRESIDENT?

I leave you finally with the most recent ridiculous (and DISTURBING to say the least) video clip on CNN:

Puppy chews off baby's toes (1:17)
People are eager to adopt a pit bull who chewed off a baby's toes.

And on THAT note, bon weekend to all. Plans for my last 2006 weekend in Paris include a Christmas market and French Scrabble. Here's hoping yours is filled with gingerbread and vowels as well...
