In Iraq, the US military claims to have killed 49 “criminals” (a militia accused of kidnappings) in raids and air strikes on Sadr City, and sort-of-denies Iraqi government claims that it killed women and children in the process: “Ground forces reported they were unaware of any innocent civilians being killed as a result of this operation.” Unaware. Indeed, US forces do seem to be unaware of innocent civilians in Iraq period. Un-a-fucking-ware.

Prime Minister Evil Twin of Poland’s party has been defeated in early general elections, albeit by another right-wing party. The new prime minister will be Donald Tusk. Prime Minister Tusk. A Monty Python name if ever there was one.

Headline of the day (AP): “India Official Dies After Monkey Attack.”

This is the proposed design for the new National Library in Prague, aka The Blob, aka The Octopus. Not everyone is thrilled.
