The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Page A19?

Page A19 of Sunday's Boston Globe is where they stuck the demonstrations in DC that might loosely be call a "Tea Party" rally against Federal Government spendinig.

The Washington Post gave it page one, top of the fold, billing in the paper edition, with two photos.  I wonder if I can see two of my grandchildren in the photo.

Interesting to me, the Globe print edition had the reporter as Nafeesa Syeed.  The on-line edition has the reporters as Emma Brown and James Hohmann. Same lead photo.  Different words.  Here is the print edition (Nafeesa Syeed) lede:
Tens of thousands of protesters fed up with government spending marched to the Capitol yesterday, showing their disdain for the president's health care plan with slogans such as "Obamacare makes me sick" and "I'm not your ATM."
Here is the on-line lede:
Tens of thousands of conservative protesters, many complaining that the nation is racing toward socialism, massed outside the US Capitol yesterday, angrily denouncing President Obama’s health care plan and other initiatives as threats to the Constitution.
They are different and the on-line lede has a spin the print edition does not.

  I wonder if the title at the top of the page, Boston Sunday Globe means it is a whole new paper?
  Shouldn't "president" have been capitalized?

I'll admit paying almost no attention at all to the Globe (ever) for precisely this reason. The editorial slant is quite often jaw-dropping in its extremity. It's almost impossible to gain any actual news from it at all without becoming dangerously misled. But it's encouraging that some people still keep track. (Kinda like the way I feel about Jon Stewart and the tabs he keeps on Bill O'Reilly)
