AGAIN - media twisting the news!

Banner headline in the [UK] Sun:

"Now even Yanks claim UK asylum"

Picturing no one left here but the illegal Mexicans, I rushed to investigate.

WRONG! Out of about 300 million, 5 of us were sufficiently disturbed this year to flee to the UK. Hardly a sign of serious depopulation. Rather like noting the deranged slaughter in Amish land and screaming, "AMERICANS ARE MURDERERS!"

It appears this is because newspapers and even TV is recognizing the enormous power of this Internet to grab people's attention. Yes, the world is a-changing, hopefully for the better.
