A mistake is breaking news.

I found picture after picture of President Bush’s press briefings and they all had the flag and the White House flag. Did this “person” remove the flags? Did they get in the way of people focusing on him? Is this something I am going to remind everyone of every chance I get? Damn right!

Maybe they put the flag there because Robert Keil was a sailor? He is the next obit. listed after the flag.

That's what I'm thinking, but let's not let logic get in the way of histrionics.

No, seriously. He’s using the Jeddi mind-trick. It only works on members of the press and liberal congresscritters though.

That particular flag only has 50 stars. It deserves 7 more.

A newspaper actually printing the truth is breaking news. Sadly people here want pit bull attacks, daily devotionals to huckster TV pastors & other con artists, detailed posts on how to pray the rosary (sadly 50+% of Catholics forget Catholic history and vote for a muslim), female teachers who are horny and get caught, etc etc.

“A newspaper actually printing the truth is breaking news.”

The U.S. flag is not dead, this is NOT the truth and is definately not breaking news (imo)

“Sadly people here want pit bull attacks, daily devotionals to huckster TV pastors & other con artists, detailed posts on how to pray the rosary (sadly 50+% of Catholics forget Catholic history and vote for a muslim), female teachers who are horny and get caught, etc etc.”

I cannot recall the last time I saw any of those stories posted in “breaking news.”

A bit short for quote dashes, yes. And maybe splitting the line would help.

Uhm, you meant the standard-not-printing-the-Name dashes, sorry. Well, sometimes it’s dashes, sometimes a couple tildes (G’’d), in english it’s just kind of symbolic but in hebrew (and over parchment) the Name is not written out because it can be erased by constant rubbing.
