Each day we offer a sample of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.
New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Chicago Mobster, 87, Gets 35 Years”
Is he eligible for parole after ten years?
Sweden, The Local: “Medical Marijuana Comes To Sweden”
Let’s give this a high five!
Australia, Sydney Morning Herald: ‘I Have Not Lost My Mind”
That assumes Sarah Palin has a mind to lose.
France, Connexion: “Sell Tomatoes At Loss”
Sort of a red squashy story.
Russia, Moscow Times: “Yushchenko Slams Tymoshenko”
No comment. The headline is enough.
China, China Daily: “China To Import More Pork”
Doesn’t sound Kosher to me.
Kuwait, Kuwait Times: “Fasting Healthy”
I don’t know about healthy, but if you are poor, necessary would be the word.
