Don't Bank On It

Our sympathies to those who've lost relatives in the Egyptian ferry disaster, and our fervent wishes that those responsible for marshalling and transporting those doing the Hajj start acting more responsibly, what with the pigrims being a captive market and all that.

But I couldn't help but notice that NY1's map of the region seemed to show the West Bank as part of Jordan. While its status is indeed cloudy, now more than ever, I would imagine that a New York news organisation might be more sensitive. Just, saying, both AJCs.

That said, I do have to admit that the "Who's Watching The Children Thing" that I mocked in the post below, has been soberly-presented and well produced. But they need to watch out for News 12 Brooklyn, which is so local it was live from a cop shop on Washington Ave last night. Have to say, though, the anchors sound like they're being recorded in a shed.
