    I never saw news of Bin Laden as anything but sinister.
    The foreign media was all over endearing stories about him like Osama bin Laden 'had stoned fantasies about marrying Whitney Houston and murdering Bobby Brown'

    Really, as a human being, how can that * not * warm the cockles of your heart?

    (as a caveat, I have no idea what a "cockle" is , but I heard the word online and liked it, and have been itching to work it into one of my posts . .. )

    •  Guilty. Never saw any of the that. (0+ / 0-)

      I was in France for a bit, right after 911 and they loved us. Then again I was there after Bush started the war - not so much love. I'll never forget the headline I saw pasted all over the newsstands one day, asking who was more evil, showing a photo of Bush next to Saddam Hussein. I digress.  

      I do need to pay more attention to foreign news. I get most of my news from NPR with a splash of BBC, but of course can't help but see mainstream headlines online. Huff's okay.

      Anyway, Whitney Houston? How wild.

      (And I got a good chuckle over your cockles)

      When facing darkness - be the light.
