Someone recommended that a blogger post every day. Well, I don't have time for that. So here is my contribution to the world today.
In related news, Brittany Spears threw up. She claims it was because of a medical condition called pregnancy. Whatever.
In serious news, Newsweek, the magazine of "did you hear, someone may have disrespected a mass produced book of false scripture," showed on its Japanese cover a U. S. flag in the trashcan. A blogger with the site called Riding Sun (a N. Y. born motorcycle enthusiast living in Tokyo - kind of a specialized market I guess) covers this story nicely. To sum up:
It's one thing for Newsweek to actively promote the notion that America is a "dead", "rotting" country overseas. But it's quite another thing indeed to hide those efforts from its American readers. If Newsweek really thinks America is dead, and our flag belongs in the trash, why won't it tell us?
If I were to offer Newsweek a suggestion, it would be this: Any story or cover you're ashamed to un in America probably shouldn't be used in other countries, either.
As they say, read it all, with a discussion of the fact that neither the story nor the photo was played the same way in the U.S. edition.

Who likes Mondays? I don't know. Preachers I guess.
