Good, Bad, and Ugly
Reader reaction to Reuters news
What a tragic, heart-rending but brilliant picture by Andrew Winning on the front page of The Guardian yesterday – a brilliant composition that should be nominated for an industry award. Please pass on my congratulations.
Indeed. Thanks for noticing: GBU Editor

Shame on you. You aren’t journalists. You are propagandists and sellouts. Cheney is right on Gitmo, and 90 members of Congress agree with him.

This picture does not look real. Among the people in the background (fuzzy) is someone who looks like Obama, only his image is very large compared to the surrounding people. I also think he didn’t visit Kenya recently.
However, this weekend a photograph that appeared in The Vancouver Sun touched me in a way that lingers even now. I am referring to the photograph capturing the incalculable grief of a father on the heels of the knife attack at a daycare in Belgium. Rarely have I seen a photo that so deeply and poignantly captures the horror, bewilderment, confusion and grief on the heels of a human tragedy.
Reuters’ caption for the photo begins: “A suspected gunman walks…” Notice the object the terrorist is holding in his hands. It’s a gun. He isn’t a “suspected gunman,” he’s a “gunman.”
LOS ANGELES (Reuters Life!) – Lingerie model Karolina Kurkova has been voted the world’s sexiest woman by E! entertainment television, beating sultry actresses Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson for the honor.
Ms. Kurkova is the greatest high fashion model of the early 00s, since Ms. Moss. Tell me Ms. Kurkova is a lingerie model. She helped Mr. Galliano and Mr. Lagerfeld make Dior and Chanel what they are today.
Your articleTravel Picks:10 top ugly buildings and monuments was extremely frustrating. How could you write an article like this and only include one picture? How lazy can you get?
Your headline on this story should probably read “monuments” instead of “monument.”
We think that B. Hussein Obama is really Osama Bin Laden. Look at photos of them. The eyes are the same – all else could be altered cosmetically. What greater humiliation could America take at this point, than to elect our ‘arch enemy’ as President? Look for yourself.

Uncanny. Same smile, everything. How could we not have noticed this before? GBU Editor

Your photo caption says this picture was taken September 24, 2007. Looking at the photo, anyone (except your photo editor?) can see the NYSE clock reads “JUNE 1 THURSDAY”.
