And sometimes
you just want to go off into the woods
to live with the bears and wolves…

Um...huh?  When I clicked that link, the article was about a 10-year-old piece of toast with the supposed image of the Virgin Mary, and the bids it garnered on eBay.  If anything, it's simply News of the Weird.

What exactly were you trying to say with that link?

Alicat,

That someone, anyone, should believe….,
doesn’t that make you want to shut the door?

Remember when all those Brits were
seeing Princess Diana after her death,
(I can’t remember what it was in or on)?

Aenimal,

You might be right.

Ah, ok.  For a moment there I thought the url had changed from something more something negative about America and Americans, to something more banal and tabloid worthy.  If the BBC wishes to become another The Onion or WWN, that is totally up to them.
