There’s Simply No Excuse for Being Bored on a Trip.  It’s the get-off-the-hotel-grounds ethic, really.  Conversely, you could call it the don’t-eat-at-international-McDonald’s ethic.

The Economist:

Fears of proliferation.  “By his own standard George Bush is failing in his pledge, set out in the state-of-the-union address in 2002, that ‘the United States of America will not permit the world’s most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world’s most destructive weapons’. Of the three countries he named at the time as part of the ‘axis of evil’, Mr Bush invaded Iraq but found no nuclear programme and he has been unable to stop Iran from rushing ahead with uranium enrichment that many fear is designed to make atomic bombs. This week, he proved powerless to stop North Korea from carrying out what it claimed was its first nuclear test.”

The article seems to stop short, short of any summation or conclusion.

Times Online.UK:

I’m oppressed, you’re oppressed, we are all oppressed: the victim culture.  “The study calculates that 73 per cent of Britons are members of officially recognised ‘victim groups’, including the disabled, women, ethnic minorities and homosexuals.  Each group is given government support, including protective legislation.”  One of my pet peeves about modern culture.  Don’t forget the all-important blind left-handed dentists without tonsils.
