Stuff from print media that interested me...
a chart in Newsweek showing who owns resources and business in the United States, super-imposed on a beautiful American bison... lovely to see who owns our @$&! :)
The other one was in the Wall Street Journal, they showed a gleeful Bosnian Roma woman in front of a flaming shack. I mean she looked like she totally was having a BALL burning the place. The caption said that a group of Roma burned their own little places after being forced into government housing. If it's the encampment I am thinking of on the outskirts of Sarajevo, it's a place with Roma war veterans who were living in dire circumstances, wintering in packing crates and I know they probably are GLAD to have someplace more secure to be. There was no story with the color picture so I can't say I really know.
