The daily chutzpah of the news

The alarmclock goes off. It is pitch dark and cold in a way we are no longer used to. Makes you wonder what day it is, just for a few seconds, especially after the holiday season.
Alas. Up to work.... Put on the radio lest we fall asleep again. BBC-World Service, as ever. The news programme Analysis. The first voice utters the first words to be heard on our radio:
President George W. Bush is adamantly pro life.

He's not just pro life, ya see. He is it adamantly.
Reminds me of that even more democratically installed German head of state, who was a vegetarian.
