what a headline

What an odd headline:

Songhua River Temporarily Drinkable

Well, it’s cool that Heilongjiang is cracking down on pollution, and even cooler that the crack down is showing such dramatic results, but this seems to me like a strange way of announcing this particular success.

And according to the ad I just saw on TV, Ford is the epitome of cool. Ford is the car for the active new urban cool people into adventure sports and other cool new lifestyles. Everybody remember that: You’re not cool until you’re driving a Ford.

Well, I still think a big, black Flying Pigeon bicycle is a gazillion times cooler than any car. In fact, any bicycle is cooler than any car.
