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.

Firing of Octavia Nasr

Is this Political Correctness gone mad?

The Cable channel, CNN, has terminated, after 20 years, Octavia Nasr, after she tweeted about the death of Lebanon's Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah.  The reason CNN acted seemed to be his connection to Hezbollah, but he was also someone who seems to have been much more "modern" (if I may use that word) than the mainstream Hezbollah leadership.

Perhaps others have different views?

Perhaps CNN was looking to fire Octavia Nasr over other issues and this just gave them an opportunity.
