Our Crazy World in The News (Part 1)

Whenever I log in to my Yahoo Mail I see about five news headlines in a box. Sometimes the juxtapositions between the stories are just painful. A couple of months ago just under a story about a murderous shooting rampage in the American Midwest there was another story headlined as “Violence Subsides in Iraq”.

Today I see a similarly inappropriate juxtaposition between not two but three stories:

So two people are in trouble for using cameras to infringe on someone else’s personal freedom, and quite rightly so. However, it is apparently OK for the government to take pictures that see right through your clothes. I guess it is just all part of the spirit of this gee-whillickers Flash Gordon age that we find ourselves living in.

I’ll be posting more of these juxtapositions.
