Voice from the Commonwealth
Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

The BBC World News surprised me last night. After the report from a correspondent in Baghdad, the newsreader pointed out that report had to pass Iraqi censors. Then they went on to talk about the 'shock and awe' strike in Baghdad the reporter interrupted the newreader right off the top to point out that this was not mass indiscriminate carpet bombing. He stressed that the attack was incredibly accurate and that it appeared that only government office were hit. 'Fair and Balanced' from BBC World Service? Not something I saw all that often when I lived in Singapore. \
