Not worthy

With the war on terror over the world, the war on drugs in south america, the war on unemployment, and the war on batelco locally.. its a bit of a challenge to notice little details... words that are thrown around by the media.. just to inflate a story maybe.. or make it sound thrilling.. but the subliminal effect they have goes under the radar.

Last week... all over the news.. "Abu-Musaab Al Zarqawi was assassinated".... there was an air raid and "he was assassinated"... "the forces assassinated Al Zarqawi..."

NO HE WAS NOT!

MARTIN LUTHER KING was assassinated...

JAMAL ABDUL NASSER was assassinated

JOHN LENNON was assassinated...

That fat looney got killed! I don't think he was worth being called assassinated.

Does this sound right?

Does any of you remember an ad in GDN one month ago calling for models of all shapes and sizes? The fronting company was called 8th wonder.

Well apparently, what this company wants to do is select 10 decent looking girls, take them to the Ibiza party at the gulf hotel next thursday.. and their job between 9 pm and 2 am is collecting business cards from wealthy lonely men.

Now I don't know about you folks.. but to me.. this sounds very wrong! Thats whoring with your clothes on...

But then again.. this jurisdiction has always been a balance of double standards.
