“Naked murder suspect fights with police after allegedly mutilating his gay victims’ testicles.”
The above a report from New York, the mutilation an attempt to set on fire the particular testicles.
Imagine being a policeman, returning home at day’s end and having one’s wife ask, “Anything interesting happen today?”
That item came from the website PINK NEWS which flushed up when I probed what the latest march on Parliament was about. It turned out to be a protest about the murder in Texas of a black transvestite. Seemingly, the showpony marchers want our MPs to put a stop to this.
At the other end of the media spectrum I rather enjoyed a line from a book review in the Financial Times. The book in question, a new biography on that old charleton, Andy Warhol, who by all accounts was a nasty piece of work.
The reviewer commenting on an improvement in Warhol’s behaviour towards the end of his life wrote, “He bordered on even becoming pleasant.”
Well, I suppose that’s something even if Andy never quite got there.
