Quick quiz: Republican presidential candidate John McCain is saying…


“Wave, Cindy! I think that’s my first wife over there!”

“Is that jerk fooling anybody with that comb-over?

“There’s one of the guards from the Hanoi Hilton! Yo! Nguyen!”

“Look what that sign says about me! It says… Oh. Never mind.”

This is news?

Sorry, but we’ve changed nothing. Reuters still has both the Oddly Enough news channel: http://www.reuters.com/news/oddlyEnough and an Oddly Enough Blog: http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/ which is clearly labeled as a blog.

It appears that someone at Google has tinkered with their gadget and the news channel link now leads to the blog, which is understandably upsetting to people looking for actual news stories. You should probably direct your complaints to Google.
