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

Sweden, Local:   “Half Swedes Unsure If Driving While Drunk”

Big deal, we have a Congress that legislates and the trouble is they are NOT drunk.

UK, Independent:  “Most Brits Satisfied With Life”

Then again, most Brits satisfied with the weather.

South Africa, Mail &Guardian:  “Why Did Chicken Cross Border”

He just could not take any more of Bashar al-Assad.

France, Connexion:  “Strauss-Kahn Details Uninhibited Sex Life”

This is definitely not news.

Australia, Sydney Morning Herald:  “Stay In Touch”

God, if only our Congress could stay in touch with reality.

Something very dark about this comment.
