Cable "News"

The Georgian Republic and Russia appear to be on the brink of war. At this writing, BBC World Service is the only media outlet that has anything to say about it. CNN is absorbed in Peking's version of the Disneyland Light Parade, as is Headline News and MSNBC. Faux News is telling us all about wonderful new online social networking websites for dogs.

I would have thought a European war would be at least as important as a sporting event.

Perhaps a short prayer of thanks is in order that NATO never got around to admitting Georgia?
