How much of this story do you even want to read?
A hospital in Ontario, Canada, says the package a Native mother received in the mail is not the fetus of her miscarried baby.
I'll be honest. I barely got past the headline.
This isn't a good approach to take. I know this. I also know that several of the other stories at Indianz.com deserve to be heard. As much as anything deserves hearing, anyway.
But I still can't bring myself to click on USA Today: DOI investigating BIA prison abuse (5/21), for example, or Fighter jet crashes on Tohono O'odham Reservation (5/21), or. . . you get the idea.
On the other other hand, I wasn't able to come up with a coherent -- even for me -- response to some photos someone had posted a while back, when the Abu Ghraib story first broke, of some coalition (read: US) troops giving frisbees to Iraqi youth.
It was linked quite a bit by people on the right, as an example of the sorts of stories the liberal, America-hating media didn't tell.
I mean, sure, good news for a change so people don't think the entire rest of the planet is a non-stop chamber of horrors, all well and good, but how many fucking frisbees does it take to equal someone getting a chem light shoved up their ass is what I'm wondering.
