Bad news: journalism continues to deterriorate, public amused

This morning in Alameda, while driving to work, I noticed a kid's red helium balloon blowing slowly down the middle of the middle of the street. Yes, the Nena song immediately came to mind.

I was poking around on Lew Rockwell's blog page this morning and saw where Lew noted that the LA Times had a story about a German paper company refusing to ship more paper for printing banknotes to Zimbabwe, where there is rampant hyperinflation. I love Rockwell's sense of irony. He noted that the LA Times story was headlined: "Lack of bank note paper threatens Zimbabwe economy." The joke is that this is analogous to a headline stating: "Dangerous Crack Shortage Threatens Health of Junkies". It's all funny papers now.
