The Best News Headlines Are In Britain
When the U.S. caught the mastermind of September 11th in Pakistan, you never once read a headline like the one pictured above. Why is it that the Brits can call a Spade a Spade when they see one, whereas we give similar good news the bottom left corner of Page A-21?
Congrats to the London Police... You Got The Bastards. Now make 'em cough up everything they can before they're sent off to 'Club Gitmo' or some other PC paradise for terrorists. If there's a run on Gerbils and Lube at the Qwicky-Mart across from the station where these guys are being questioned, you know the cops are having a field day.

I love the headline, too. You know our media is too 'PC' to say something like that - and besides, I'm not sure they'd like it if we caught some 'biggie'. Mess up their preconceived notions...11:55 PM
