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

Australia, Sydney Morning Herald:  “Whatever You Do, Don’t Howl”

That is hard, given the behavior of Republicans in Congress.

Norway, Norway Post:  “Beloved Dog Dies”

I give this three bow wows.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “This Is It I’s Going To Die”

I just read another piece of imbecility from Gingrich, a few more and death will be welcome.

Turkey, Hurriyet:  “Government Firm On Reform”

Absolutely, not reform, and we are firm about that!

Sweden, Local:  “We Can Bounce Back”

Depends on spring in your legs.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post:  “Don’t Be Lonely This Christmas”

Have you tried snuggling up to Santa?

France, Connexion:  “Secondary Teachers On Strike”

Great news for students. An early Xmas present!
