While taking a short break from coding I saw the article Leaders urge calm if Williams dies on CNN.com and was stuck by two thing:
- “Dies”? He is due to be executed by the state, and they use the broadest term possible. A lame and evasive headline.
- What calamity has been correctly predicted recently? There were warnings of mass anti-semitism after Mel Gibson’s movie, warning of 10,000 or more dead after Katrina, an economic recession due to high gas prices and so on. Here’s a question: what calamity have the pundits in the media correctly predicted beforehand? They seem to have enough problems predicting the past.
