Balanced Fare: We Report, You Deride

OK, It's Tasteless, But Is It Intentional?

What do we find near the bottom of Friday's "Best of the Web"? [Yes, I have noticed the calendar, what did YOU do last weekend?] There is a story about the Left titled "Anti-American Implosion".

The story begins with a well known quotation, and an interesting link to the source thereof: "if a man is not a socialist by the time he is 20, he has no heart. If he is not a conservative by the time he is 40, he has no brain." Well enough, but the article concludes with the following news item:

The San Francisco Chronicle reports "the second of two anti-war protesters who suffered severe head injuries when they poked their heads from a private bus in San Francisco's Broadway Tunnel has died"...

Maybe, given the intro, this story could have been omitted.
