Chinese spill poisons water for millions
How come professional environmentalists don't scream about this?
The story doesn't even quote a single activist.

Outrage - - that wasn't
Human rights activists are curiously silent, too, when Belgium passes a law to allow police to bug suspects, tail them, and search their premises without - gasp - a warrant. And where is the outrage for this?

On the bright side
Things are getting serious at the Knight-Ridder offices. The union is talking about buying the paper chain. One less ultra-liberal newspaper chain.

Just wondering
What is with all the major newspapers racing to shield their journalists from critical eyes? Is it to protect fragile egos or maintain a fiction that the sods can actually think or write?
