I’ve been allergic all day, and I’m feeling too out of it to sensibly assemble a table of data without being sure that I won’t feel I did it wrong later. As such, I’m not in a good mood, and so I will take the opportunity to complain.
- “Study: Africa Worst Place for Moms, Kids”. Check out the included statistics for data on preventable diseases that any sane epidemiologist would find appalling.
- “Rabbis, Azam urge Pollard release”. The US put away a man for life for allegedly spying for a friendly country, even though people who have spied for enemy countries have been given much lighter sentences. Considering that Pollard has been in captivity for 20 years already, the last several US presidents have all been at best morally negligent in failing to correct this injustice. Even Bush, who many allege is a friend of Israel, has not ever considered releasing Pollard.
- “PA frees Hamas rocket squad member”. Apparently Abbas does not quite understand that dismantling terror organizations requires not merely capturing terrorists, but also keeping them in custody so they are no longer a risk to anyone.
