  1. Bad things happen in wars

Let's not be naive," Major General James Mattis, commander of the US 1st Marine Division, said. But he had no explanation of where the dead women...

  2. News Of The World, RIP

    The Dirty Digger's Sunday UK filth-sheet, at one time the biggest-selling newspaper in the world, has fallen on its sword. Huzzah. News International may well launch a replacement Sun On Sunday. Boo. What really matters is where the filth-merchants end up writing or broadcasting in future....

  5. The widows and children of Osama Bin Laden

    I wonder whether the entire family will be forcibly kept away from documentary and news interviewers for the rest of their lives. Pakistan is preparing to deport the widows and children of Osama Bin Laden. A court sentenced the three women and Bin Laden's two eldest daughters to 45 days in...

  7. Lady Diana's Dying Photos

    I'm flopping on this issue. They are probably pretty disturbing photos but the same photos were taken of JFK. Maybe they shouldn't be in a magazine but perhaps a book about her life and times. To me, putting them is some tabloid dimishes her life and the horrible circumstances of her death. ...

  8. How lies become truth in online

    I wonder how many if any stories I bought into? Being a Facebook story would be my first alarm bell. Really I believe I know people who would pass such stuff on. ‘Nothing on this page is real’

  11. Inauguration

    The Inauguration of the US President as I understand it is usually a celebration of democracy. This one is a celebration of corruption and Russian hacking if not blackmail. I gather the entertainment will be 1 Rockette and a few runners up in talent shows. Not one major currently performing star...

    Following debate on the Officer Rathband thread, I did some looking. The way I see It Is that actual fatalities In the police force are not relevant as 'Putting their life on the line' surely means ' Being exposed to situations that could cause loss of life'. Digging around, I found this...
