Like Abu Ghraib, Only For Publishers

Sorry, too busy to write something properly, but read this if you have a moment. Richard Desmond, now publisher of the Daily Express, a rival to the Daily Mail, but at the time a pornographer, once told a mafia soldier that he was "stupid and common", during a dispute over advertising for mafia-run sex lines. So the next time one of Desmond's executives visits New York, he's abducted and tortured using a taser in the rude bits. Nice. All this is retold in the courts in Brooklyn, you betcha.

Hey Gringcorp--what do you think about this?

Mmm, fox-hunting. Best seen as a proxy battle for the eternal struggle between city and rural camps. We know of many rural folk who have never been near a hunt (now pheasant shooting, that's another matter...) but would defend it to the bitter end, because it's you know, rural.

For what it's worth, there are many better ways to keep foxes and other vermin away from one's land, and several more efficient ways as well (gas, bullets, amusing chemicals and diseases), but few that you, as a land-owner, do not have to pay for.

So it's a bit of pity that you won't be able to find some red-clad loons to do the job for free. Even if they don't do it very well.
