Each day we offer a sample of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.
Australia, Brisbane Times: “Man Gets Reply After 52 Years”

We really don’t want a lot of foreigners in our country who board the wrong train. We already have enough Swedes who do that.

In the future, please sell it illegally off line.

Heck in America we have bums who make laws.
