FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

Monday

Head-Scratching Moment of the Day

I’m guessing that the term “Journalist” comes from the Latin word “jurnalis” which means “making it up as you go along.”

In an Associated Press article about the very short-lived cease-fire in the Gaza Strip, writer Karin Laub describes the on-going violence in the region. Rifles, grenade launchers, the burning down of offices and businesses…this cease-fire agreement, like all of the others, has been ignored. The violence continues.

But, that fact did not sit well with Karin Laub. So, she penned, arguably, the dumbest sentence I have ever read:

"Despite the violence — including multiple kidnappings — both sides said they would honor the cease-fire."


Uhh…what?
