HEADLINES FROM THE WORLD PRESS

Each day we offer a sample of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

UK, Independent:  “Thousands Of Students Skip Classes”

Great, now they can spend the day learning something useful.

Australia, Sydney Morning Herald:  “8.7 Million Species”

And, not a single one containing intelligent life.

China, China Daily:  “China To Import More Pork”

Not very kosher if you ask me.

Kuwait, Kuwait Times:  “Fasting Healthy”

And, it makes sense if you lack money.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald:   “Hard For Cows”

Why not hoof it some other place?

Russia, Moscow Times:  “Dozens Vie To Run For Kyrgz Presidency”

Run or run away from?

Sweden, Local:  “World Water Week”

Gulp!
