Holy monkeys

Headline you don’t see every day: “Menaced by Holy Monkeys, Indian Villagers Call in the Contract Killers.”

Speaking of holy monkeys, Zell Miller, the Last Democrat, followed his cranky old man speech with interviews I did not see, because I have a reception problem with cable news channels. Well, not so much a reception problem, more that after a minute I start loudly bemoaning the state of American democracy and journalism, which makes it hard to hear, with all the bemoaning. So I missed seeing Zell-boy threaten to punch out Chris Matthews.

After 18 days, the Palestinian hunger strike ends as it began, with both sides calling each other liars. The Palestinians say that concessions were granted, Israel denies there were even negotiations.
